Harassment and Sexual Harrassment
California and federal law, as well as CSU policy, prohibit unlawful harassment of an employee or applicant for employment or independent contractor.
Harassment is unlawful if it is based on any of the following: race, color, religion, sex (pregnancy or gender), sexual orientation, marital status, national origin (including language use restrictions unless justified by business necessity), ancestry, disability (mental and physical, including HIV and AIDS), medical condition (cancer/genetic characteristics) and age (40 and above).
Represented employees may file a complaint of unlawful harassment at their campus using the appropriate procedure provided for their bargaining unit. Non-represented employees may use the procedure in Executive Order 928 (.pdf).

- CSU Policies on Harassment,
