Sexual Harassment and Bullying
I do not tolerate sexual harassment or bullying. As a county commissioner I have made it clear that such behavior is simply unacceptable and will not be endured.
The county has a strong policy clearly stating that sexual harassment and bullying are not allowed. Employees receive training to recognize sexual harassment and how to report incidents to either their supervisor, the Director of Personnel or a county commissioner.
Commissioners maintain an “open door” policy and any complaint is investigated by the Director of Personnel, who reports directly to me and provides me with the results of his investigation for appropriate action.
All county employees take training and are educated on what is sexual harassment and bullying. This issue is taken very seriously and termination of employment has occurred as a result of violations.
Sexual harassment and bullying are not and will not be tolerated, period!
