General Policy Statement

Saint Augustine's University [“The University”] will not tolerate any unlawful harassment of its employees. Types of unlawful harassment covered by this policy include harassment against an individual because of that person’s race, sex, religion, color or national origin, age, disability, or any other classification protected by federal, state or local law. The policy applies to harassment by any of the University’s employees as well as any non-employees present in the University’s workplace such as contractors, vendors, and/or suppliers, interacting with the University’s employees in connection with their work. Such prohibited harassment can arise from a broad range of physical or verbal behavior, which may include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Physical or mental abuse;
  • Insults, jokes, slurs, comments based on an individual’s race, sex, religion, color or national origin, age, disability, or any other classification protected by federal, state, or local law;
  • Display of suggestive, offensive or discrimination–oriented pictures or materials.

Accordingly, the University will not tolerate harassment within its organization, including all of the University’s facilities and departments. As outlined below, the University takes seriously any harassment claim and specifically prohibits any supervisor or any other University employee from unlawful harassment.

The University welcomes any questions and comments from employees regarding the harassment policy outlined below.
