Procedures for Reporting and Investigating Sexual Harassment

Employees should report incidents of inappropriate behavior or sexual harassment as soon as possible after its occurrence. Employees who believe they have been sexually harassed, regardless of whether the offensive act was committed by a Manager, co-worker, vendor, visitor, or client, should promptly notify their immediate supervisor or the Director of Operations. If the employee’s immediate supervisor is involved in the incident, the employee should report the incident to the Director of Operations. Every claim of sexual harassment will be treated seriously, no matter how trivial it may appear. All complaints of sexual harassment or other inappropriate sexual conduct will be promptly and thoroughly investigated by Move This World, Inc.

There will be no retaliation for filing or pursuing a sexual harassment claim. To the extent possible, all complaints and related information will remain confidential except to those individuals who need the information to investigate, educate, or take action in response to the complaint.

Employees who believe they have been unjustly charged with sexual harassment can defend themselves verbally or in writing at any stage of the investigation. At the conclusion of a sexual harassment investigation the complainant and the “alleged harasser” shall be informed of the determination of the investigation. Where appropriate, the “harasser” and the “victim” may be offered counseling through an Employee Assistance Program, or mediation.
