The District Attorney ensures a harassment free workplace for all employees. Harassment occurs when there is deliberate or repeated conduct which unreasonably interferes with the employee's work or creates an intimidating work environment. Prohibited conduct may include but is not limited to unwelcome verbal comments; unwelcome physical gestures; unwelcome communication by mail, telephone or computer; unwelcome physical contact; derogatory personal comments; intimidation; threats; or cursing and offensive language.
Harassment is not only unacceptable, it may also create legal liability for the office and personal liability for employees when the conduct is based upon a person's race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, or age. For example, sexual harassment liability can occur when there are unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Report any harassment to your supervisor, the First Assistant or the District Attorney. Persons reporting harassment will be protected from retaliation. Failing to immediately report workplace harassment involving you or observed by you may also result in discipline.
