Mandatory Harassment Training
The University of Southern Maine is committed to providing a positive educational and work environment that recognizes and respects the dignity of all students, faculty, and staff. Harassment of any form undermines this important commitment and is not appropriate or acceptable within the university community. Further, in complying with the letter and spirit of applicable laws and pursuing its own goals of diversity, the University of Southern Maine will not tolerate discriminatory harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, including transgender status and gender expression, national origin or citizenship status, age, disability, whistleblower or veterans status in employment, education, and all other areas of the University. For more information about the University’s non-discrimination policy please visit http://www.usm.maine.edu/eeo/.
As part of our commitment to a safe and welcoming workplace, and in compliance with legal mandates, we are committed to providing Harassment Training on an on-going basis to all employees. We have partnered with our legal counsel, Bernstein Shur, to offer an on-line delivery of this training. This training is mandatory.
If you are a supervisor, you are required to complete the on-line module for supervisors. The entire module takes less than one hour. In addition, the University needs your assistance in committing to 100% training of all employees reporting to you. If you are not a supervisor, please complete the employee training module which takes approximately forty-five minutes.
Below you will find details on the website and the log-ins that have been established for USM.
FMI, please contact Cory Legassie in the Office of the Vice President of Human Resources firstname.lastname@example.org or 228-8304. Thank you for your support and compliance in this important matter.
