Definition of Harassment

Harassment is verbal or physical conduct that denigrates or shows hostility or aversion towards an individual because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, handicap or disability, or that of persons with whom the individual associates. For example, racial harassment includes harassment based on an immutable characteristic associated with race (e.g., skin color or facial features). Religious harassment may include demands that an employee alter or renounce some religious belief in exchange for job benefits; and sexual harassment is defined more specifically below.

The Corporation's policy is to prohibit behavior based on a person's race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, handicap or disability that: (1) has the purpose or effect of creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment; (2) has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work performance; or (3) otherwise adversely affects an individual's employment opportunities.

Regardless of whether any single instance of improper behavior described below rises to the level of harassment prohibited by law, it is the Corporation's policy that such behavior is inappropriate and offensive, and it will not be tolerated.

Examples of behavior that violate this policy and may constitute harassing conduct include, but are not limited to:

-Epithets, slurs, quips, or negative stereotyping that relate to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, handicap, disability, or any other category protected by law;

-Threatening, intimidating or hostile acts that relate to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, handicap or disability;

-Written or graphic material (including graffiti) that denigrates or shows hostility or aversion toward an individual or group because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, handicap or disability that is placed on walls, bulletin boards, or elsewhere on the Corporation's premises, or circulated or displayed in the workplace; or

-“Jokes,” “pranks” or other forms of “humor” that is demeaning or hostile with regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, handicap or disability.
