Personnel Policies

It is the policy of the University not to engage in discrimination against or harassment of any person employed by or seeking employment with the University of California on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, physical or mental disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital status, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or status as a covered veteran.

Sexual Harassment in a University Setting: Federal and State law, as well as University of California policy, prohibits sexual harassment in both employment and educational settings. The University of California defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.

Employees shall not use or abuse legal substances in a manner that impairs performance of assigned tasks. University employees working on a federal contract or grant must abide by this policy as a condition of employment and shall notify the University within five days if convicted of any criminal drug statute violation occurring in the workplace or while on University business.
