Policy Against Sexual Harassment

The Institute of Chinese Studies is committed to providing a place of work free of sexual harassment, intimidation or exploitation.

All employees and fellows of the Institute, including those who are in temporary or short term positions are subject to this policy.  Anyone violating this policy is subject to disciplinary action.

Reports of sexual harassment are taken seriously and will be dealt with promptly. The specific action taken in any particular case depends upon the nature and gravity of the conduct reported. ICS recognises that confidentiality is important and will respect the confidentiality and privacy of individuals reporting or accused of sexual harassment to the extent reasonably possible. Reprisals against an individual who in good faith reports, or provides information in an investigation, about behaviour that may violate this policy, are against the law and will not be tolerated. Intentionally providing false information, however, is grounds for disciplinary action.
