Upon completion of the investigation, the investigator will make written findings and conclusions as to each allegation of harassment and report the findings and conclusions to the Director of Human Resources or designee. The investigator will provide a copy of the findings of the investigation to the Director of Human Resources or designee. Following receipt of the investigator’s report, the Director of Human Resources or designee may investigate further, if deemed necessary, including interviewing the complainant and the respondent. The Director of Human Resources or designee will make a determination of any appropriate additional steps, which may include discipline. The Director of Human Resources or designee will file a written report and documenting any disciplinary action taken, or any other action taken, in response to the complaint. The complainant, respondent, and the investigator will receive notice as to the conclusion of the investigation. The Director of Human Resources or designee’s decision may be appealed to the President within five (5) business days of receiving notice of the determination. Such appeals will be in writing and delivered to the President’s Office. If an appeal is timely filed, the President’s Office will send written notification to the parties stating the appeal has been filed and that they have the opportunity to submit additional relevant information and/or statements for review within five (5) business days. The President or designee will then review the record on appeal, and may affirm, reverse, or modify the decision regarding the violation and/or discipline imposed. A written decision of the President or designee shall be provided to the parties and the Director of Human Resources. The written appeals decision shall be completed within twenty (20) days of the date of appeal, or longer for good cause. The decision of the President or designee shall be final. Evidence uncovered in the investigation will be treated as confidential, subject to applicable law. Information received during the investigation is kept confidential to the extent possible. Absent extenuating circumstances, the investigation and resolution of the complaint will generally be concluded within sixty (60) days. If the results of an investigation show that the complainant knowingly filed false accusations of discriminatory harassment, or that a witness gave false statements, such individuals will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action. A finding for the respondent does not constitute a finding that the complaint was made in bad faith. Retaliation Prohibited Retaliation of any kind against anyone seeking guidance, filing a complaint or participating in an investigation for discriminatory harassment is prohibited. Examples of retaliation include, but are not limited to, any action that has an adverse impact on employment, compensation or work assignments, or, in the case of students, grades, class selection or any other matter pertaining to student status.
