PS-73, Revision: PS0073.R04, Effective: January 2, 2001
Excerpt from PS-73:
The University reaffirms and emphasizes its commitment to provide a workplace free from sexual harassment and to provide a means to remedy sexual harassment that employees may have experienced.
The intent of this policy is to express the University's commitment and responsibility to protect its employees and students from sexual harassment and from retaliation for participating in a sexual harassment complaint.
It is not intended to infringe upon constitutionally guaranteed rights nor upon academic freedom. In considering allegations of sexual harassment, the University must be concerned with the rights of both the complainant and the accused. All complaints of sexual harassment must be reported to the Office of Human Resource Management. All proven cases of sexual harassment shall result in appropriate disciplinary or other corrective action. The severity of the disciplinary action shall be consistent with the seriousness of the act of sexual harassment. Additionally, under appropriate circumstances, the University may take action to protect its employees and students from sexual harassment by individuals who are not employees of the University.
Mandated Yearly Sexual Harassment Training
In the Louisiana Senate Concurrent Resolution 107 passed in 2012, the Louisiana Senate resolved that all state agencies should provide one hour of sexual harassment training to each public employee each year. Each LSU classified employee, professional employee, faculty, other academic employee, contingent/transients, graduate and teaching assistant, and student worker must take the statutorily mandated sexual harassment training each year.
To satisfy the requirement, visit: http://community.moodle2.lsu.edu/course/view.php?id=137 to enroll in the course. Upon completion, employees will be able to print out a certificate of completion for your records. Please follow the department’s instructions for reporting and compliance.
