The Employer and the Union do not condone harassment and are committed to a respectful workplace.
23.02 Definition of Harassment
The University has a discrimination and harassment prevention policy covering all members of the campus community. An employee who believes he or she has been harassed shall have access to the policy and the grievance procedure.
The employee making a complaint may choose to register it under the Employer's policy as well as via the grievance procedure. However, the policy process will proceed first where there will be an objective investigation including the nature and context of the incident(s).
In the event the policy process does not address the complaint to the employee's satisfaction, the complaint is grievable at Step 1. Both parties agree that all proceedings and the results thereof will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
Employee complaints of harassment by students will be handled in accordance with Council and Senate regulations.
