Workplace Behavior

Supervisors should create and promote a safe and healthy work environment where organizational behavior standards are upheld with integrity, consistency, and grace. 

Healthy Workplace Behaviors

Wrongful Behavior

Bullying can take many forms, including jokes, teasing, nicknames, emails, pictures, text messages, social isolation or ignoring people, and unfair work practices. This behavior does not have to be repeated to be discrimination – it could be a one-time event.

Discrimination is an action or attitude of treating, or proposing to treat, someone unfavorably in the workplace because of a personal characteristic generally protected by the law, but clearly protected by the organization.

Harassment is any unwanted physical, verbal or nonverbal conduct directed to others that offends or humiliates another person, interferes with his or her ability to work, creates a hostile or offensive work environment or leads to adverse job-related consequences (for example, termination, lack of promotion, bad working hours, etc.

Sexual harassment is defined as “unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature … when … submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as the basis for employment decisions … or such conduct has the purpose or effect of … creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment.”
