4750 Sexual Harassment

Policy Type: 
Professional Staff

It is Henry Ford College's policy that it will not permit, and will take strong action against any sexual harassment of its employees by anyone and particularly by fellow employees or management. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal and physical conduct and communication of a sexual nature when either:

  1. submission to or rejection of such conduct or communication by individual is used as a factor in decisions affecting such individuals hiring or employment; or

  2. such conduct or communication has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual's employment or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive employment environment.

Any HFC employee who believes he/she is subject to any type of discrimination or sexual harassment must report such to their immediate supervisor or bring their complaint to the attention of the Coordinator of Affirmative Action, the Director of Human Resources or any member of the administration. We will investigate each complaint thoroughly and confidentially.
