Compliance with regulations of YPSS and the National Park Service is required of all employees, both on and off duty. Possession or use of drugs, excessive use of alcoholic beverages, and vulgar or boisterous conduct are prohibited and are grounds for discharge. Employees may be subject to random and/or reasonable cause drug and alcohol testing. Employees are expected to be considerate of others and comply with all rules in dormitories and dining rooms. Refusal to comply may be cause for dismissal.
If the employee does not comply with job requirements, company policy, and/or performance reviews, YPSS reserves the right, without obligation on its part, to discharge or change the position of such employee. YPSS also reserves the right to lay-off the employee should business conditions warrant.
We require of all employees a spirit of helpfulness, courtesy, and hospitality toward Park visitors without regard to the race, religion, color, age, sex, veteran status, national origin or handicap of the visitors. Employees who do not live up to this requirement are subject to discharge.
It should also be noted that, since employment is within a Federal Reservation, any act of dishonesty or any other crimes or misdemeanors are Federal Offenses. Therefore, investigation of such matters is handled by Federal Law Enforcement Officers and any legal actions are brought in the U.S. district court.
