End Notes:

We believe that Global Space Organization (GSO) employees and/or crewmen in training are and will continue to be good and professional people, and that they ordinarily will not engage in acts contrary to the best interests of themselves, other employees, students or the GSO. However, in instances in which employees do engage in conduct contrary to these interests, they will receive discipline appropriate for such misconduct. The degree of discipline in each case, up to and including discharge, will be determined by the severity of the situation involved.

Discipline can take may forms. It may be something as simple as a formal counseling between the individual and the supervisor. Disciplinary action may include an oral or written warning, suspension without pay, loss of annual bonuses, or possibly termination from employment. The GSO has no obligation to use any one or more of these forms of discipline. Any or all of these forms of discipline may be employed if the misconduct is deemed serious enough by the GSO.
