Sexual Harassment Policy

Holyrood building reflected in ponds 


The aim of this Policy (opens as a PDF, 440KB) is to create an environment which is free from sexual harassment and sexist behaviour.  We will do this by being clear about the behaviours that are unacceptable and by fostering a culture of respect which ensures a safe, secure, and welcoming environment.  

This policy is supported by the Reporting Procedures (PDF 585 KB) and sets out information about the independent support service. Flow charts set out procedures on how to resolve your concern informally (PDF 315 KB) and formally (PDF 330 KB).

You can view FAQs about the policy here.
