The worker was hired in 2013 as a casual correc- tional officer at Her Majesty's Penitentiary (HMP) in St. John's. He started with a one-year probation- ary period. His training covered policies including the dress code, deportment and safety. In addition, staff were not allowed to carry their cellphones with them, as inmates had been known to manipulate new staff into obtaining their phones. An evaluation stated that the worker maintained his uniform and appearance in accordance with policy, but he had been seen several times not wear- ing his tie or cap. There were also concerns about his attitude and judgment, including leaving the prison for cigarette breaks — which was a safety concern since staff needed to know who was inside or outside of the building in case of an emergency.
