Any employee who believes that he or she has been the target of or observes incidents of workplace violence must report this to his or her supervisor and to Human Resources. In emergency situations supervisors will call the police, notify campus security and call Human Resources. Human Resources will conduct a full and prompt investigation. The University will institute disciplinary action as appropriate and will follow up with the victims and any witness to an incident of work place violence, preserving, to the extent required by law or policy, the privacy interests of those involved. The University will release information related to such reports only on a need-to-know basis.
