Title: Workplace Harassment Awareness


1
Workplace HarassmentAwareness
2
It is the policy of Arkansas State University
that all employees, students, customers,
contractors, and visitors to our campus enjoy a
positive, respectful and productive work
environment free from behavior, actions or
language constituting workplace harassment.

  •  
  • Engaging in workplace/sexual harassment is
    unacceptable conduct which will not be tolerated.
  • Any employee found to have engaged in
    workplace/sexual harassment will be subject to
    disciplinary action up to and including
    termination.
  • Managers and supervisors who know or should have
    known of workplace harassment and fail to report
    such behavior, or fail to take immediate,
    appropriate action, will be subject to
    disciplinary action up to and including
    termination.

  • This policy recognizes ASUs commitment to the
    understanding that the maintenance of ethical
    standards and the concerns for academic freedom
    prohibit the exploitation of employees and
    students. 
  • ASU is required by law to take all steps
    necessary to prevent sexual harassment. These
    steps include informing individuals of their
    rights and responsibilities, developing
    educational programs to sensitize the campus
    community to the issue, and developing sanctions
    against harassment.

5
  • Employees may be held personally liable for acts
    of discrimination or sexual harassment. Because
    the filing of a complaint is serious, an
    individual found to have filed false charges,
    will be subject to disciplinary action up to and
    including termination.

  • Definition This for that
  • Employment decisions/student grades based on
    sexual favors

Examples of Quid Pro Quo
  • Firing an employee or failing a student who ends
    a romantic relationship
  • Changing performance expectations after an
    employee or student refuses repeated requests for
    a date

Hostile Environment
  • When verbal or nonverbal behavior (in the
    workplace or classroom)
  • focuses on the sexuality of another person or
    occurs because of the persons gender

  • is severe or pervasive enough to affect the
    persons work (classroom) environment
