It is the policy of Essex County College that all employees have the right to work in an environment that is free from harassment. College policy prohibits harassment in any form and states that staff at all levels must avoid harassing behavior and will be held responsible for ensuring that the workplace is free from harassment.
Specifically, the College prohibits the following and warns that such behaviors can result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal:
If you are experiencing harassment by a College employee, or visitor to the College, you are advised to bring such matters to the attention of your supervisor or Area Head, or to the Human Resources Director, Main Campus, Room 5100, (973) 877-3085. If the complaint involves your supervisor or someone in your direct line of supervision, or if for any other reason you are uncomfortable discussing the situation with your supervisor, you may take it directly to your Area Head or the Human Resources Director.
The College will endeavor to investigate all complaints as expeditiously and professionally as possible. Where investigations confirm the allegations, appropriate corrective action will be taken. Disciplinary actions up to and including dismissal may result. Confirmation may also subject the offender to personal, legal, or financial liability.
The College will make every effort to handle the complaint and investigation processes as discreetly as possible. There will be no retaliation against any employee for filing bona fide a harassment complaint or assisting in the investigation of a complaint. However, if the College finds that the complaint is not bona fide or that it contains false information, disciplinary action up to and including dismissal may result.
