Dignity at Work

The University is committed to ensuring a working and learning environment in which the dignity of individuals is respected.  Any form of harassment is, therefore, unacceptable. The Dignity at Work Policy Statement and Procedure have been developed deal with any concerns or complaints of harassment, bullying or inappropriate behaviour raised by members of staff.

The University has established a group of trained Contacts, to whom a recipient of harassment or bullying (or in certain circumstances the alleged perpetrator) can go and speak in complete confidence.  They are there to listen, to hear and to understand what has happened, and to offer help and support whether or not an individual wishes to make a formal complaint. Speaking to a Harassment Contact does not invoke formal action but will assist individuals by providing support and in considering options open to them.

No member of staff invoked the Dignity at Work procedure in the academic year 2012-2013.
