Harassment, including sexual harassment, is contrary to basic standards of conduct between individuals and is prohibited by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) and state and federal regulations.
Treating others with respect is a core expectation of Parker employees. As such, Parker maintains a strict policy that prohibits harassment in any form– whether committed by a supervisor, faculty member, staff member or vendors and visitors.
Harassment includes, but is not limited to, verbal, physical, or visual conduct or contact that interferes with an individual’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.
