Request for sexual attention as a condition of employment; and/or
Other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, where:
There is an attempt to make submission to such conduct a term or condition of an individual's employment; or
The submission or rejection of such conduct as uses of basis for employment-related decisions; or
Such conduct has a purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual's work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment; this could include such workplace conduct as displaying "pin up" calendars or sexually demeaning pictures; or
Telling sexually oriented jokes, making sexually offensive remarks, or engaging in unwarranted sexual teasing; or
Subjecting another employee to pressure for dates, sexual advances or touching.
If you believe that you are being sexually harassed by a fellow employee, supervisor or any other person in connection with your employment with the Borough of Moosic, you should bring the incident to the attention of the Borough Manager, or any other member of management with whom you would feel comfortable discussing this matter. The Borough of Moosic will promptly investigate all allegations of harassment in as confidential a manner as possible and take appropriate corrective action if warranted.
Any employee who is determined, after an investigation, to have engaged in harassment in violation of this policy or to have engaged in retaliation against an employee who makes a complaint would be subject to appropriate disciplinary action up to and including discharge.
