Preventing Workplace Harassment
May 16, 2011
Dear Faculty and Staff,
Hartwick College is committed to providing a working and learning environment that is healthy and inspiring. It should go without saying that such an environment must be free of all forms of harassment.
Our community actively embraces this principle. Because we not only abide by federal, state, and local laws against harassment, but also promote their intent, harassment training will be mandatory for all Hartwick employees. Training is required within 30 days of hire and every three years. This training will assure that all faculty and staff have the information they need to encourage standards of professional, harassment-free behavior for and between all members of the Hartwick College community.
I am pleased that we are partnering with United Educators to provide you with an interactive computer tutorial on Preventing Workplace Harassment. The information and guidelines outlined in the online educational module are clearly designed to increase your awareness of what harassing behavior is, how to prevent it, and what to do if you see it. This tutorial will satisfy your mandatory training requirement. Should you have any questions, please contact Director of Human Resources, Suzanne Janitz.
Thank you for your partnership in assuring that our campus is a healthy, harassment free environment.
Dr. Margaret L. Drugovich
