Preventing Sexual Harassment

The sex discrimination provisions of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace.

An instructional online presentation is designed to make Atlantic Cape Community College employees cognizant of the definitions and seriousness of sexual harassment and to remind everyone of the college’s demand for civility and fair treatment.

Successful completion of this online training program is required of all full- and part-time employees.

The college seeks an environment for work and study which permits employees and students the opportunity to progress in their careers and educations on merits and abilities without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, or sex.

Atlantic Cape will not condone sexual harassment by any student, faculty or staff member, or visitor.

The EEOC has defined harassment on the basis of sex as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal of physical conduct... when:

  1. submission to such conduct is made explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment, evaluation or grade
  2. made the basis for employment, evaluation or grade decisions affecting such individuals
  3. such conduct has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual's work or school performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or learning environment
