I feel like I’m being treated differently now that I’ve participated in the complaint resolution process, and it seems like retaliation. What can I do?
Our policies prohibit retaliation against anyone who makes a report, participates or refuses to participate in an investigation, proceeding, meeting or hearing, including Complainants, Respondents, and witnesses.
Retaliation can take many forms, including sharing information in a manner intended to pressure or shame parties or witnesses in connection with the investigation or resolution of a complaint or words or actions designed to discourage parties or witnesses from making a report or participating in the process. If you or someone you know is experiencing retaliation, we strongly encourage you to contact us or make a report immediately so the matter can be addressed appropriately.
