Sexual Harassment and Misconduct (Title IX)
It is HFC's policy that it will not permit and will take strong action against any sexual harassment of its students and employees by anyone and particularly by fellow employees or management. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, as well as other verbal and/or physical conduct and/or communication of a sexual nature when either:
- Submission to or rejection of such conduct or communication is used as a factor in decisions affecting an individual's hiring or employment; or
- Such conduct or communication has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual's employment or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive employment environment.
Henry Ford College Reach Out App is a free resource guide and smartphone app that provides sexual assault prevention information, safety and security information, and alerts through a smartphone app.
Any student who believes he/she is subject to any type of discrimination or sexual harassment must report such to the attention of the Student Title IX Coordinator. HFC will investigate each complaint thoroughly and confidentially.
