The State of Oregon passed a law called the Workplace Fairness Act, and the President’s Leadership Cabinet has implemented a new University policy consistent with this law, according to Sandy Chung, human resources. This new policy is called the Addendum to Harassment and Discrimination Policies. All University employees are encouraged to review this policy. This policy has links to other relevant policies and resources embedded in it, and it will be uploaded to up.edu/hr/workplace-concerns.
The Human Resources team is preparing several voluntary online workshops for UP employees during fall break week (October 12-16). Several of these workshops are on topics related to self-care. As well, there will be a Zoom workshop during fall break week about harassment and discrimination policies and processes at UP. Human resources will provide more information about these workshops next week.
