The Policy Prohibiting Discrimination and Harassment applies to a member of the university community who believes that he or she may have been discriminated against or subject to harassment based on his or her sex, race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, genetic information, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, military service, veteran status, or any other category protected by law.
Complaints of discrimination and harassment against employees or student employees may be made in accordance with the Discrimination and Harassment Complaint Process. A member may seek an informal resolution by discussing his or her problem with the Office of Employment Equity (OEE). Alternatively, a member may seek a formal resolution by filing a formal complaint with OEE.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual assault. While compliance with the law is everyone’s responsibility at the university, the university has designated certain staff members who have primary responsibility for Title IX compliance. For a list of Title IX Coordinators and additional resources, including who to contact if you have a complaint of sexual harassment, sex discrimination, or sexual assault, visit: http://compliance.rutgers.edu/discrimination-/title-ix-compliance.
