Sexual Harassment Statement

Adopted 2/6/96

The Neuschafer Community Library is committed to providing a work environment free of sexual harassment. The Library Trustees adopt and strongly support the following sexual harassment policy.

  1. It is against the policies of the Neuschafer Community Library for any employee, village official or library trustee to sexually harass an employee by (a) making sexual advances, requesting for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, a condition of continued employment ; or (b) making submission to or rejections of such conduct the basis for employment decisions affecting the employee; or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment by such conduct.
  2. Any employee who believes he/she is the subject of a sexual harassment incident should report the alleged act immediately to his/her supervisor. If, for any reason, you are reluctant to report the incident to your supervisor, you may contact the Library Board President, or any other library trustee.
  3. A confidential investigation of all complaints will be undertaken. Anyone found by the Library Board (or the Village Board should the harassment concern a Library Board Trustee) to have sexually harassed a library employee will be subject to sanctions up to and including termination or prosecution, depending on the circumstances.
  4. The question of whether a particular action or incident is a purely personal, social relationship without a discriminatory employment effect, requires a determination based on all facts in the matter. Given the nature of this type of conduct, we also recognize that false accusations of sexual harassment can have serious effects on innocent people. We hope and trust that the library will continue to remain a pleasant working environment free of harassment.
