Retaliation

TItle VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and several ther Civil Rights laws, as well as KU Medical Center policy, prohibit retaliation against any persons who file discrimination complaints or who participate in an investigation of a complaint, whether by an individual directly involved or by his/her associates.  Complainants who utilize EOO and KU Medical Center procedures or persons who participate in an investigation of a complaint should not be subjected to retaliation.  Retaliation may take the form of unwanted personal contact from the respondent or disparate treatment in the assignment of job duties, schedules, class work, grades, or other performance or academic based activities.   Phone calls, e-mail or other attempts to discuss the complaint may be perceived as retaliation under certain circumstances.  Disciplinary action, harassment, unsupported evaluations, or other adverse changes in the conditions of employment or the educational environment may also constitute retaliation.  Retaliation will not be tolerated and could result in suspension, reassignment, salary reduction, termination, expulsion or other disciplinary action.

If you believe you have been subjected to retaliation or have witnessed retaliation, please contact the EOO office at (913) 588-8011, or click here to file a complaint online.
