Non-Discrimination Policy -
After discussing the complaint with the student, the Director may, in appropriate cases, contact the employer to discuss the complaint and to clarify the employer's policies and practices. If the complaining student so requests, the Director will preserve the student's anonymity to the extent practical in discussing the complaint with the employer.
The Director will keep written records of the complaint, related conversations, and any informal compromise or resolution of the matter. Such records shall be solely for the use of the Career Development office and will not be available to students.
Any student who submits a written complaint and subsequently decides not to pursue the matter may withdraw his or her complaint and the letter will be destroyed and no record of the complaint will be kept. If the employer has already been contacted when the student drops the complaint, the employer will be told that the student has withdrawn the complaint and the employer will have an opportunity to respond to the substance of the complaint if the employer so wishes.
If the student chooses to pursue the complaint, the Director shall then present the complaint and any supporting materials to the Dean of Students. The Dean of Students shall review the complaint and request a written response from the employer. In appropriate circumstances, the Dean of Students may wish to hear directly from the complaining student and/or employer.
If the Dean of Students finds that the employer should be sanctioned for its recruiting conduct, she may impose sanctions on the employer, including, in serious cases, barring the employer from the on-campus recruiting program for a stated time. Information about formal sanctions imposed on particular employers will be made available to students.
