Know the facts about workplace harassment

Children's Hospital of Wisconsin is committed to providing a cooperative environment free from intimidation and harassment. This is embedded in our values and in our Harassment and Disruptive Behavior policy, which requires that all individuals be treated with courtesy, dignity and respect. Employees should be familiar with the harassment policy located on the intranet under Quick Links, Policies and Procedures. Select your part of the health system, then Administrative, and click on Harassment and Disruptive Behavior Policy. Contact your leader or Human Resources consultant if you have questions.

Intimidation and harassment can arise from a broad range of physical and verbal behaviors that can include, but are not limited to:

  • Insults or slurs related to race, culture, religion, gender, gender expression, disability, pregnancy, age, marital status, veteran status, military service, national origin, ancestry, color, serious illness, arrest or conviction record, lifestyle or sexual orientation
  • Unwelcome physical contact, sexual advances or touching
  • Sexual comments, jokes, stories, gestures or innuendoes
  • Requests for sexual favors used as a condition of employment or affecting employment decisions such as hiring, promotion, compensation or termination
  • Display or distribution of sexually explicit or otherwise offensive posters, calendars, magazines, jokes, email, cartoons, graffiti or materials
  • Conduct that unreasonably interferes with an employee's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment such as swearing at or verbally attacking someone

Reports of any of the above should be made immediately to one of the following:

  • Your Human Resources consultant or HR manager
  • A vice president
  • General counsel, assistant general counsel or director of Risk Management
  • The confidential compliance hotline at (414) 266-1773 or (877) 659-5200
  • The administrator on call
