Harassment Policy

Each employee has the right to work in an environment free of harassment of any sort by co-workers and the general public.  As per the Library Board of Trustees, sexual and verbal harassment is unacceptable conduct in the workplace and will not be tolerated from any source, including supervisors, co-workers, and non-employees.

Neither the public, nor employees shall make offensive or derogatory comments based on race, gender, national origin, religion, or any other categories protected by state or federal law, either directly or indirectly.

It is illegal for any person to harass another person by making unwelcome sexual advances or other verbal or physical conduct by creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment.  It is illegal for any person to physically assault another person or to attempt to commit an assault.

Employees who believe they have been harassed or discriminated against should report the behavior to his or her immediate supervisor or the Director.  If the problem lies with the Director, the employee is urged to speak to the President of the Board of Trustees.

Complaints will be investigated promptly and confidentially and the employee will be advised of the findings and conclusions.  The library will take appropriate corrective action to remedy violations of this policy by library employees.  Members of the public who engage in such harassment may be denied access to the library.

No retaliation or other adverse action will be taken against any employee who in good faith reports harassment, or assists in the investigation of any such matter
