Harassment Policy 05-06

Relevant excerpt

Sexual Harassment includes such things as:

* Sexually offensive language
* Inappropriate remarks about someone's body or sexual activities
* Indirect or direct pressure for sexual activity, with or without implied or directly stated threats
* Inappropriate touching, patting, pinching, leering or ogling someone's body.
Sexual harassment can occur between men and women, but it can also occur between members of the same sex. Trying to make fun of "putting-down" someone using words that refer to a person possible sexual orientation (for example, calling someone "queer" or "fag" ) is sexual harassment.
Non-sexual Harassment
Non-sexual harassment is any type of repeated abusive or demeaning conduct that is based on a person's race, color, religion, national origin, physical or other disability, age, political belief, or affiliation, or socioeconomic status. Non-sexual harassment may be illegal and should be reported.
Harassment can take many forms; it can be verbal comments, physical contact, hate mail or phone calls, graffiti, or placing items on an individual's door.
