Retaliation

When an individual engages in an activity that is protected by the University’s nondiscrimination and sexual harassment policies, the individual is protected from retaliation for opposing any discriminatory acts, and for participating in filing a charge, testifying, assisting, or being involved in any manner in an investigation. Protected activity also includes testifying or presenting evidence as part of an internal investigation conducted as a result of an allegation of discrimination or sexual harassment. The prohibitions against retaliation apply whether or not the original complaint is found to be valid. Any actions that may constitute retaliation should be reported to OED immediately.
