will have the designated unit or the staff to process sexual harassment
complaints. While school receives the
verbal or written complaints from the case complainant, school will call for a
gender equity committee to apply for an investigation or file a report at the
earliest possible in order to facilitate evidence collection, investigation,
and handling. During school
investigation period, three school units should coordinate together to offer
help for those involved.
- The investigation group under School Gender Equity Committee will be objective, fair and
professional, allowing both involved parties sufficient opportunities to
make their statements and respond to allegations. The investigation group will also keep confidential
principle to prevent personal info from leaking out, except for
investigation necessity or public safety concerns.
- School administration unit will take necessary
measures for the protection of the involved persons’ right to education or
employment. For example, school may
rearrange curriculum or activity for the persons involved. Most important, for those unqualified
teachers/staff/faculty, school will lay them off once the sexual
harassment or assault case is confirmed and report them to the government
unqualified teacher database to prevent them from entering campus again.
- School counseling system will start up to offer
counseling service, protective measures, follow-up plan or other
assistance to the persons involved, especially the victim or the
complainant on a campus sexual assault or sexual harassment case. School counseling system can also help
the government social worker or police unit process the case if necessary.
