Harassment Policy for Nevermore Edits

On June 1st, 2018, the board of Nevermore Edits adopted a Harassment Policy to be added to our bylaws. Pursuant to the policy, the board also assembled a Harassment Committee, and appointed Donna Leahey as its chair. If you feel that you have been harassed, please feel encourage to bring the matter to the attention of any Board member. If you have any questions on this or any other matter, my fellow officers and the Board are at your disposal.

Find the text of the approved policy below.

Sincerely,
Mac Boyle
President

PROPOSED HARASSMENT POLICY, NEVERMORE EDITS:

Nevermore Edit Writing Club has zero tolerance for harassment of any kind. 

Harassment is a form of discrimination and is against the law. Nevermore Edits has zero tolerance for harassment on any basis including race, gender, sex, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity expression, age, color, political affiliation, parental status, mental or physical disability, genetic disposition or carrier status, citizenship status, creed, national origin, marital status, military service, and veteran status, or any other category protected by applicable law. Harassment may occur when a member is treated differently because of their membership or identification with one of the categories listed above. Slurs and other verbal or physical conduct relating to an individual’s gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other basis constitute harassment when it has the purpose or effect of creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment.

Definition of sexual harassment
Acts which are considered to constitute sexual harassment include, but are not limited to:
  • unwelcome sexual advances,
  • requests for sexual favors, and
  • other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature where submission to such conduct is either an expressed or implied term or condition of continued participation;
  • submission to or rejection of such conduct is to create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment; or
  • bias, either against or in favor of, an individual as the result of such behavior;
  • generally inappropriate conduct or behavior that, in the best judgement of the person who witnesses it or hears it, constitutes misconduct.

Sexual harassment guidelines apply equally to all genders. This policy extends to every member. Accordingly, sexual harassment will not be tolerated. Harassment includes, but is not limited to, behavior that is unwelcome or offensive, one-sided (not reciprocated) and repetitive (except in cases of sexual assault), produces an intimidating environment, or makes the recipient feel powerless to stop it; whether or not sexual harassment exists depends on the recipient’s perception of these conditions, not the initiator’s intent or perception.

In accordance with this policy, the Club will maintain a Harassment Committee that will consist of voluntary members of the Board. This assembly of members shall not be entirely of the same gender. The committee shall be comprised of at least three members, including a chairperson, all three of which will be appointed by the board as vacancies arise. The Harassment Committee shall meet as needed to review over the particulars of any accusation that might arise. Depending on the circumstances, these meetings can be held privately. If members of the Harassment Committee are involved in alleged harassment—either as an accuser, the accused, or otherwise directly involved—they shall recuse themselves from the Committee’s activities regarding the alleged harassment. The Committee will be responsible for making any and all recommendations to the Board. It would be incumbent on the Board to take necessary action based on those recommendations.


Nevermore Edits Writing Club reserves the right to sever ties with any individual or organization in accordance with this statement of policy. By way of accepting membership to the Board of the Club, or election to one of the various Officer positions, individuals assert their understanding that they are responsible for and required to report—to an appropriate law enforcement agency—any and all activities which would appear to violate local, state, or federal laws.
