Employment & Workplace Policies

Workplace Violence

The Institute is committed to providing a violence-free workplace for its employees. The Institute prohibits actual or threatened violence by employees against co-workers, students, faculty, visitors, vendors or anyone doing business with the Institute. The policy is also intended to promote workplace security by addressing situations in which visitors or any other persons who are either on our premises or have contact with employees in the course of their duties threaten or commit violent acts against them.

Security and safety in the workplace is every employee’s responsibility. Verbal or physical threats of violence are serious and must be reported immediately to your supervisor and the Director of Human Resources. When an employee becomes aware of an imminent act of violence, a threat of imminent violence, or actual violence, emergency assistance must be sought immediately by calling Campus Safety at ext. 2222 or if necessary, by calling 911.
