How the Harassment Advisors Can Help
Harassment Advisors Can
  • Listen to staff and students who believe they are being harassed, to clarify the options open to them and to assist them in resolving the matter informally where possible
  • Provide similar support to those accused of harassment.
  • Where requested, support individuals throughout the resolution of their concerns. This may include discussing with the individual what they may wish to say or write to the person who they feel has harassed or bullied them or to a senior member of staff who can take action. The aim is to empower and support the individual.
  • Deal with all cases with the utmost confidentiality except in cases where there is an unacceptable risk to a member of staff, student or to the institution.
Harassment Advisors Cannot
  • Make statements to the effect that a particular behaviour definitely constitutes harassment that will lead to disciplinary action, or to the effect that a particular behaviour is NOT harassment.
  • Approach the alleged harasser in an attempt to mediate or resolve the matter for you.
  • Act as your representative or advocate.
  • Be involved in any formal stage of the process, be it in writing the formal complaint, the investigation, disciplinary or grievance procedures, except by way of giving you the support you need during this time.
