The University expects all members of the University community to treat each other with respect, courtesy and consideration at all times. All members of the University community are expected to behave professionally and have the right to expect professional behaviour from others.
The aim of the Dignity at Work Policy is to support and sustain a positive working environment for all staff, free from any form of unacceptable behaviour. It highlights the options available to staff if they believe they are subject to bullying, harassment or other unacceptable behaviour and sets out the responsibilities for managing and supporting staff when concerns are raised under the Dignity at Work Policy.
The Dignity at Work Policy does not form part of and is not intended to vary the contract of employment or worker’s contract. It may be amended from time to time, as necessary.
Dignity @ Work Contacts provide confidential advice to those who feel that they are experiencing difficult working relationships, including bullying or harassment. If you would like to talk confidentially to a Dignity @ Work Contact, you should call (7)65031 which is a confidential voice-mail number and leave your name and contact details, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact details.
