All employees will be provided a work environment free from sexual harassment. Sexual harassment is a form of misconduct which undermines the integrity of the employment relationship. Such conduct, whether committed by supervisor or nonsupervisory personnel, is specifically prohibited.

Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature in which:

  1. submission to such conduct is made either an explicit or implicit term or condition of employment,
  2. submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as a basis for employment decisions affecting that person, or
  3. such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with the individual's work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.

Any employee who believes he/she has been subjected to sexual harassment on the job should bring this to the immediate attention of his/her supervisor, the affirmative action officer, or any district administrator with whom he/she feels comfortable in discussing the matter.

All such complaints will be promptly investigated and, where appropriate, immediate corrective action will be taken. To the highest degree possible, allowing for a fair investigation, all such complaints will be treated in a confidential manner. Retaliation against employees shall not occur because they have made complaints of sexual harassment to management.

Persons who knowingly report false allegations of sexual harassment or corroborate false allegations of sexual harassment will be subject to appropriate discipline or other sanctions.
