James Madison University is committed to providing a workplace free from illegal discrimination and harassment. JMU Policy 1324 www.jmu.edu/JMUpolicy/1324.shtml. JMU continues to strengthen efforts to prevent discrimination, sexual harassment and assault from occurring and to dedicate support services for assault victims. When such acts are reported, a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation will follow. JMU will not tolerate retaliation against anyone who complains of discrimination, harassment, or who participates in an investigation.
Why is it HARD to talk about these things?
Belief the behavior will end if ignored
The complaint process could seem worse than the harassment
Conviction that nothing could be done
Losing job or status
Being blamed for inviting the mistreatment
Loss of privacy
