Sexual harassment is a form of illegal
sex discrimination and is prohibited under ABC policy.
Sexual harassment is defined as
Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for
sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature
constitute sexual harassment when:
Submission to such conduct is an
explicit or implicit term or condition of an individual's employment;
Submission to or rejection of such
conduct is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting the individual;
Such conduct has the purpose or effect
of interfering with an individual's performance or creating an intimidating,
hostile, or offensive working environment.
The Grievance and Appeal procedures
(see Disciplinary Action Policy) are to be used to resolve sexual harassment
complaints. The Director of Affirmative
Action can also accept complaints and inquiries.
