Zero tolerance policy

A zero-tolerance policy is a strict approach to enforcing rules or laws that involves applying predetermined consequences, usually severe, without exception or deviation for any infraction.

In essence, it means that no violation or act of misconduct, no matter how minor or unintentional, will be overlooked or excused. The policy is designed to deter people from committing any offense by making it clear that there will be no leniency for violators.

For example, a school with a zero-tolerance policy for bullying may expel a student who engages in any form of bullying, regardless of the severity or frequency of their actions. Similarly, a company with a zero-tolerance policy for workplace harassment may immediately terminate an employee who engages in such behavior, without giving any warnings or second chances. learn more about Admission Management.
