Harassment Policy - Sydney Community College

Harassment Policy

The College has a commitment to provide a work and learning environment free of harassment, bullying and victimisation. Harassment is behaviour directed at another person that is uninvited and unwelcome and includes offensive and/or intimidating behaviour based on a person’s sex, pregnancy, marital status, race, colour or ethnic background, physical appearance, age, sexual preferences or disability.

Complaints about harassment whether from staff or students that cannot be resolved informally through your tutor/trainer or class supervisor, should be put in writing with the letter addressed to the College Principal. Your correspondence will be acknowledged within two working days. Counselling and disciplining of staff will be provided if deemed appropriate in accordance with other College policies and procedures. Counselling and exclusion from class of offending students may also be appropriate.
