–Express or implied requests for sexual favors as a condition of job retention, promotion, or other benefit of employment.
–Unwelcome physical contact.
–Harassment of other behavior (such as the telling of sexually explicit jokes, improper suggestions, graphic or descriptive comments or discussions about an individual’s body or physical appearance, degrading verbal comments, offensive sexual flirtations, and intimidation).
Offensive behavior directed at a person’s race, color, religion, sex, age, national or ethnic origin, or marital status is also prohibited. The UC-IMC’s policy on sexual harassment and other offensive behavior applies to staff, its Board of Directors, donors, and volunteers.
Any complaints of harassment should be referred immediately to the Operations Manager or the Board.

False complaints will not be tolerated and may lead to disciplinary action against the false accuser.”
