COMPANY, POLICY PROHIBITING SEXUAL HARASSMENT
Statement of Philosophy
COMPANY. (herein after referred to as COMPANY) is proud of its tradition of a collegial work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, including clients, customers, employees, vendors, and independent contractors. Each individual has the right to work in a professional atmosphere which promotes equal employment opportunities and prohibits discriminatory practices, including sexual harassment. At COMPANY, sexual harassment, whether verbal, physical, or environmental, is unacceptable and will not be .
Definition of Sexual Harassment
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Guidelines on Discrimination Because of Sex (29 C.F.R. §1604.11(a)) defines conduct which constitutes prohibited sexual harassment. Section 1604.11(a) provides that unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when:
Examples of sexual harassment include, but are not limited to:
Individuals Covered Under the Policy
This policy covers all individuals in the workplace. COMPANY will not tolerate, condone, or allow sexual harassment, whether by fellow employees, supervisors, managers, customers or other nonemployees who conduct business with this Company. COMPANY encourages the reporting of all incidents of sexual harassment, regardless of who the offender may be, or the nature of the offender's relationship to the Company.
Reporting the Complaint
While COMPANY encourages individuals who believe they are being harassed to firmly and promptly notify the offender that his or her behavior is unwelcome, the Company also recognizes that power and status disparities between an alleged harasser and a target may make such a confrontation impossible. In the event that such informal, direct communication between individuals is either ineffective or impossible, the following steps should be taken in reporting a sexual harassment complaint:
Individuals who believe they have been sexually harassed should report the incident to all the following individuals:
1) Preston Buckner / President, C.E.O. of COMPANY / Call and mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
If the complaint is successfully resolved in an informal manner, to the complainant's satisfaction, Preston Buckner shall file a confidential report about the complaint and its resolution, so that the company will be aware of any pattern of harassment by a particular individual, and also will be aware of all complaints of sexual harassment on a company-wide basis. If the complaint is not successfully resolved in an informal manner, a written report shall be made to Preston Buckner.
An accurate record of objectionable behavior or misconduct is needed to resolve a formal complaint of sexual harassment. Verbal reports of sexual harassment must be reduced to writing by either the complainant or Preston Buckner and be signed by the complainant. Individuals who believe they have been or currently are being harassed should maintain a record of objectionable conduct in order to prepare effectively to make their written report and to substantiate their allegations. While COMPANY encourages individuals to keep written notes in order to accurately record offensive conduct or behavior, COMPANY hereby notifies all employees that in the event a lawsuit develops from the reported incident, the complainant's written notes may not be considered privileged or confidential information.
COMPANY encourages a prompt reporting of complaints so that a rapid response and appropriate action may be taken. A prompt report not only aids the complainant, but also helps to maintain an environment free from discrimination for all employees.
Investigating the Complaint
Any allegation of sexual harassment brought to the attention of the following individuals:
Preston Buckner / President, C.E.O. of COMPANY / Call and mail to: email@example.com will be promptly investigated. Confidentiality will be maintained throughout the investigatory process, to the extent practical and appropriate under the circumstances.
The investigator will try to take the wishes of the complainant under consideration, but will thoroughly investigate the matter, keeping the complainant informed as to the status of the investigation.
Resolving the Complaint
In order to minimize the damage to COMPANY’s, the complainant, and the alleged harasser, Preston Buckner will complete the investigation of a sexual harassment complaint, and communicate his or her findings and intended response to the complainant and alleged harasser, as expeditiously as possible. If COMPANY finds that harassment occurred, the harasser will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action, as listed below (see §VII). The complainant will be informed of the disciplinary action taken. If COMPANY determines that no sexual harassment has occurred, this finding will be communicated to the complainant and to the alleged harasser. If COMPANY cannot determine whether or not sexual harassment occurred, this finding will be communicated to the complainant and to the alleged harasser, and the matter will be recorded as unresolved. In any event, both the complainant and the alleged harasser will be informed again of the procedures set forth in this sexual harassment prevention policy.
Individuals found to have engaged in misconduct constituting sexual harassment will be subject to appropriate discipline, up to and including discharge and/or termination of services to COMPANY. In addressing incidents of sexual harassment, COMPANY’s response will include, at a minimum, reprimanding the offender and preparing a written record. Additional action may include: referral to counseling, withholding of a promotion, reassignment, and temporary suspension without pay, financial penalties, termination employment, or termination of services to COMPANY. This policy is designed to protect all employees and non employees providing services to COMPANY from harassment in any way associated with the workplace or work environment, regardless of the identity or status of the harasser. Although COMPANY’s ability to discipline a non-employee harasser (e.g., a customer or supplier or independent contractor) may be limited by the degree of control, if any, that it has over the alleged harasser, any employee or non-employee who has been subjected to sexual harassment should file a complaint and be assured that action will be taken. Such action may include closing business with a customer, reporting a supplier to his or her employer, reporting a public official to an appropriate agency, or any other appropriate action to protect the employees and non-employees of COMPANY
Protection Against Retaliation
COMPANY will not in any way retaliate against an individual who makes a complaint of sexual harassment or against any participant in the investigation, nor will it permit any supervisor/manager or employee or non-employee providing a service to COMPANY to do so. Retaliation is a serious violation of this sexual harassment policy and should be reported immediately. Any person found to have retaliated against another individual for reporting sexual harassment will be subject to the same disciplinary action described above (see §VII). An individual who makes an intentional or reckless false complaint also will be subject to the same disciplinary action as described above (see §VII).
The industry that COMPANY operates in and the nature of COMPANY’s business requires COMPANY to use the services of independent contractors and other non-employee service providers. Although COMPANY has little control over the actual work environment in which independent contractors and other non-employee service providers render services to the company, independent contractors and non-employee may meet and work together as a result of their relationship with COMPANY. As such, COMPANY may require its independent contractors and non-employee service providers to sign its Policy Prohibiting Sexual Harassment. The act of an independent contractor or non-employee service provider signing this Policy does not change the relationship of the independent contractor or non-employee service provider signing to the status of an employee. An independent contractor or non-employee service provider signing this Policy acknowledges and agree that his or her act of signing this Policy does not constitute and employer and employee relationship between COMPANY and independent contractor or non-employee service provider.
COMPANY has developed this policy to ensure that all its employees and non-employee providing as service to COMPANY work in an environment free from sexual harassment. The Company will make every effort to ensure that all its personnel are familiar with the policy and know that any complaint received will be thoroughly investigated and appropriately resolved.
