Harassment is defined as 'any unwanted, unwarranted, unwelcome or uninvited behaviour or conduct which is intimidating, degrading, offensive, humiliating, hostile or objectionable or violent to the recipients and/or affects their dignity. It may be (but does not have to be) related to a person's age, gender, sexuality or sexual orientation, race or ethnicity, nationality, disability, religion or belief, or any other individual or group characteristic(s).
Harassment may be of a persistent nature or an isolated one off incident.' Harassment includes bullying and stalking.
If you are in any doubt about whether or not what you want to report amounts to harassment - please submit a report in any event!
Reports can be submitted by anyone, but especially the following:
For third party reports, if the victim requests anonymity (i.e. they do not want to be identified) the report should be submitted excluding any information that might identify the victim or the alleged perpetrator. However, victims should always be encouraged and supported to consent for full information to be included about any harassment incident(s), especially if they want some action to be taken now or in the future.
No action will be taken following receipt of this report until the person reporting the incident and/or the victim has been interviewed and the incident discussed with them.
