Harassment is verbal, written or physical conduct that denigrates or shows hostility or aversion toward an individual because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information or any other protected characteristic under applicable law, and that:
Harassing conduct includes epithets, slurs or negative stereotyping; threatening, intimidating or hostile acts; denigrating jokes; and written or graphic material that denigrates or shows hostility or aversion toward an individual or group that is placed on walls or elsewhere on the employer’s premises or circulated in the workplace. Harassment can occur in the physical workplace, while employees are traveling for business or at employer-sponsored event or parties. Calls, texts, emails, and social media usage by employees can constitute harassment, even if they occur away from the workplace premises, on personal devices, or during non-work hours.
All complaints or information about sexual harassment, workplace harassment or discrimination will be investigated, led by the Chief Risk and Compliance Officer. Investigations will be conducted in a timely manner and will be confidential to the extent possible.Table of Contents
