HR General Administrative and University Policies: Use of Information and Communication Technologies

Relevant excerpt

Lincoln strives to maintain a workplace free of harassment and sensitive to the diversity of its employees. Therefore, Lincoln prohibits the use of information and communication technologies in ways that are disruptive, offensive to others, or harmful to morale. Lincoln has well-developed policies against harassment that cover all interactions among people, including those that use information technologies.

For example, the display or transmission of sexually explicit images, messages, and cartoons may be offensive to others and may constitute an incident of sexual harassment. Other such misuse includes, but is not limited to, ethnic slurs, racial comments, off-color jokes, or anything that may be construed as harassment or showing disrespect for others.
