Updated - Equal Opportunity, Nondiscrimination, and Anti-Harassment Policy:
This Policy is being updated to provide a more accurate definition of discriminatory harassment and sexual/gender harassment to reflect the current standard under applicable discrimination laws more accurately, including Title VII and Title IX, where harassment is evaluated subjectively and objectively as judged by a “reasonable” person and a reasonable person’s reaction regardless of an alleged harasser’s intent. This policy will undergo a more thorough review after the Biden Administration promulgates regulations currently under review. This change was brought to our attention by an outside organization that has indicated that our current definitions may restrict protected expression or punish lawful conduct.
