To provide a safe workplace through enforcement of a zero-tolerance policy with regard to acts of intimidation, threats of violence, and acts of violence in the workplace

[horizontal rule]


[horizontal rule]

Any act of intimidation including menacing and harassing behaviors, threat of violence, and acts of violence committed against any person in the workplace is prohibited.

All weapons as defined by the Arizona Revised Statutes are banned from the premises of ASU unless written permission is given by the ASU Police Department (ASU PD).

Any person experiencing or observing imminent violence in the workplace should call ASU PD at 911.

All incidents and allegations of violent or threatening conduct by an ASU employee (whether on- or off-campus) must be reported to ASU PD (480/965–3456) or the ASU Employee Assistance Office (480/965–2271) immediately. If either office determines that the behavior poses or has posed a serious threat to personal safety or to the welfare of the campus, the employee will not be permitted to return to campus until an appropriate threat assessment has been completed and, if necessary, conditions for return are imposed. ASU PD, the Employee Assistance Office, the employee’s supervisor, and other appropriate offices will coordinate the assessment in light of the relevant circumstances.

Employees must notify their supervisors and ASU PD of any restraining orders against individuals (employees or nonemployees) that include the workplace.

Any ASU supervisor, manager, or individual in authority who receives a report of a suspected violation of this policy shall document and report the suspected violation to the appropriate authority.

Employees found to be in violation of this policy shall be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination. Any employee who intentionally brings false charges will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination (see SPP 809, “Discipline,” or the Arizona Board of Regents’ policy 6–201, “Conditions of Faculty Service”).

Employees and supervisors may contact ASU Human Resources, the Employee Assistance Office, ASU PD, or an ombudsperson for assistance in maintaining a safe work environment.
