WORKPLACE HARASSMENT POLICY
Penny & Pound Theatre Productions is committed to providing a work and instructional environment in which all workers, volunteers, stage members, and supporting crew are treated with respect and dignity.
Workplace harassment will not be tolerated from any person in the workplace (including customers, clients, other employers, supervisors, workers and members of the public, as applicable).
Workplace harassment means engaging in a course of vexatious comment or conduct against a worker in a workplace that is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome or workplace sexual harassment.
WORKPLACE SEXUAL HARASSMENT MEANS:
a) engaging in a course of vexatious comment or conduct against a worker in a workplace because of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, where the course of comment or conduct is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome, or
b) making a sexual solicitation or advance where the person making the solicitation or advance is in a position to confer, grant or deny a benefit or advancement to the worker and the person knows or ought reasonably to know that the solicitation or advance is unwelcome;
Reasonable action taken by the employer or supervisor relating to the management and direction of workers or the workplace is not workplace harassment.
Workers are encouraged to report any incidents of workplace harassment to the appropriate person. (Employer may specify the person or department to report any incident(s) of workplace harassment.)
Management will investigate and deal with all complaints or incidents of workplace harassment in a fair, respectful, and timely manner. Information provided about an incident or about a complaint will not be disclosed except as necessary to protect workers, to investigate the complaint or incident, to take corrective action, or as otherwise required by law.
Managers, supervisors, and workers are expected to adhere to this policy and will be held responsible by the employer for not following it. Workers are not to be penalized or disciplined for reporting an incident or for participating in an investigation involving workplace harassment.
