CAMPUS THEATRE / THEATRE DENTON EMPLOYEE SEXUAL MISCONDUCT POLICY

Application
This policy applies to all THEATRE DENTON employees.

Purpose and Definition

THEATRE DENTON is committed to creating and maintaining a work environment free from sexual misconduct. “Sexual misconduct” is sexual harassment or any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that is persistent or offensive and interferes with an employee’s job performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.
“Sexual harassment” is defined by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when, for example:
a) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of
an individual’s employment,
b) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for
employment decisions affecting such individual, or
c) such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment. An aggregation of incidents can constitute sexual misconduct even if one of the incidents considered on its own would not be harassing.
The purpose of this policy is to prevent sexual misconduct, stop ongoing misconduct, prevent its recurrence, remedy its effects, and sanction individuals who violate this policy.

Policy

THEATRE DENTON will not tolerate any form of sexual misconduct. This is especially true when:
a) submission to the misconduct is made implicitly or explicitly a term or condition of an
individual’s employment;
b) submission to or rejection of the misconduct is used as the basis for determining
personnel decisions;
c) the misconduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s
work; or
d) the misconduct creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive working.

An employee who feels that he or she is being subjected to misconduct prohibited by this policy should immediately inform the harasser that the conduct is unwelcome and must stop. If the inappropriate conduct does not cease or if the employee is unable to or uncomfortable with addressing the alleged harasser directly, he or she should report the incident to the Managing Director or to the President of THEATRE DENTON’s Governing Board of Directors.

THEATRE DENTON will investigate reported violations of this policy. It will consider reasonable interim measures pending investigations and take appropriate and timely corrective action if it determines that misconduct occurred. Corrective action may include suspension or termination of employment.

This policy is NOT intended to interfere with an individual’s right to report misconduct to law enforcement for investigation of a criminal offense.

Reporting

Reports may be made in person, via email, by telephone, or in writing.
It is helpful, but not required, to provide a written record of the date, time and nature of the incident(s) and the names of any witnesses. The following information will assist THEATRE DENTON in conducting a thorough investigation:

The name and position of the complainant;
The person or persons allegedly committing the misconduct (“the respondent”);
A detailed description of the incident or incidents, including the dates, times, locations,
and identities potential witnesses;
Any effect on the complainant’s employment or ability to perform responsibilities;
The names of others who might have been subjected to similar misconduct;
Any prior steps taken to stop or mitigate the alleged misconduct; and
Any other information the complainant believes to be relevant.
THEATRE DENTON will take all complaints seriously.
THEATRE DENTON will receive anonymous complaints. However, making a complaint
anonymously, failing to provide complete information, failing to accurately describe events, or making a complaint based on speculation, may cause an investigation to be difficult or impossible to pursue.

Retaliation Prohibited

Reports of misconduct will not affect the complainant’s employment.

Retaliation is strictly prohibited. “Retaliation” is any adverse action taken against a person for making a good faith report or participating in any proceeding under this policy. Retaliation includes threats, intimidation, harassment, or use of a position of authority to discourage participation in an investigation under this policy. Retaliation does not include good faith actions pursued in response to a complaint under this policy.

Retaliation is a form of misconduct prohibited by this policy without regard to whether an investigation results in a finding of sexual misconduct.

Investigation

THEATRE DENTON’s Managing Director will investigate all reports of employee sexual
misconduct. The Managing Director may, but is not required, to seek the Governing Board’s approval to retain an attorney or outside agency to investigate a complaint.
The Governing Board of Directors will retain an outside attorney or agency to investigate any complaint against the Managing Director or any Governing Board member.

Complaints will be kept as confidential as reasonably possible. The identities of parties and witnesses must normally be disclosed to the complainant, respondent, and witnesses involved.
Third parties should only receive information to the extent necessary to enable a thorough investigation.

This Policy does not prevent THEATRE DENTON or any THEATRE DENTON employee from reporting potential criminal offenses to law enforcement authorities.
In performing its responsibilities, the Managing Director should:

Notify law enforcement if it appears that a criminal offense has been alleged;
Explain this policy to all parties and witnesses;
Implement interim measures reasonably necessary to separate and protect the parties
pending the investigation;
Interview all witnesses; and
Explore an informal means of resolving the complaint.
Determination

Employees who violate this policy are subject to appropriate discipline. If an investigation results in a finding that this policy has been violated, the mandatory minimum discipline is a written reprimand. The discipline for serious or repeated violations is termination of employment.
The procedures available under this policy do not preempt or supersede any legal procedures or remedies otherwise available to a victim of sexual harassment under local, state or federal law.
Persons who violate this policy may also be subject to civil damages or criminal penalties.

CAMPUS THEATRE / THEATRE DENTON VOLUNTEER HARRASSMENT POLICY
Definition of Volunteer Harassment

THEATRE DENTON is committed to maintaining an environment free of harassment of any kind.
“Harassment” as used in this policy means any repeated or habitual behavior which causes distress, feelings of a lack of safety, or physical harm to another person based on their actual or perceived race/ethnicity, religion, age, gender, gender expression or identity, socioeconomic status, disability, sexual orientation, citizenship status, geography, place of origin, marital status, or familial status. Inappropriate behavior would include, but not limited to, actions and/or statements that lack civility such as:

a) excessive profanity,
b) loud and angry or offensive outbursts,
c) intimidating or threatening actions or statements,
d) unwelcome touching of a personal nature or
e) slurs or jokes about gender expression or sexual identity.
Additionally, any kind of sexual harassment against anyone, regardless of the identities of the people involved, is prohibited by this policy. “Sexual harassment” includes but is not limited to unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when, for example:

a) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s participation in production activities;
b) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for production or artistic assignments; or
c) engaging in conduct that has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s participation in a production or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment during a production.
An aggregation of incidents can constitute sexual harassment even if one incident on its own would not constitute harassment.

Harassment does not need to have malicious intent; the impacts on the person reporting the harassment must be addressed regardless of the intent.

Harassment is not:

a) consensual sexual banter or romantic peer relationships where the people involved consent to the interaction;
appropriate performance reviews, constructive feedback and critique, or discipline by a director or other production supervisor; or
artistic content in production properties and scripts. Some productions have artistic merit despite sexual or uncomfortable action or dialogue. THEATRE DENTON must have the ability to stage meritorious productions that contain uncomfortable content. Volunteers should research all productions before deciding to participate to ensure they are comfortable with a production’s content.
Responsibilities of Volunteers

All volunteers, including THEATRE DENTON board and committee members,
production cast and crew members, and event participants are responsible for fostering a safe, volunteer environment, free of harassment of any kind.

All volunteers and program participants have the responsibility to treat each other
with respect and to refrain from all forms of harassment prohibited by these policies.

All participants are entitled to self-identified gender appropriate dressing rooms,
which must be assigned after consulting with cast members before the first full-costume rehearsal.

Cast members must be consulted before assigning a crew member to assist with
costume changes to ensure that the cast member is comfortable with the person assisting.

Whenever productions involve children and youth:
a. Children must be dropped off and picked up by their parent, legal guardian, or
other person authorized by the parent or guardian;
b. A volunteer will check cast and crew members under the age of 16 into, and out
of, THEATRE DENTON facilities;
c. Two non-related adults will be present with children and youth at all times;
d. Adult, one-on-one interactions with children should be avoided;
e. If being alone with a child or children cannot be avoided, doors and other room
openings will be left open, unobstructed, and visible to as many unrelated adult
volunteers as possible; and
f. Parents will be instructed to deliver their children in costume or dress their child
at the theatre before leaving.

Policy Disseminated to Volunteers

This policy applies to all board members, directors, producers, cast, crew and volunteers while working in any capacity at or on behalf of THEATRE DENTON.

A copy of this Policy will be provided to all new Governing and Production Board members at or before their first board meeting.

A copy of this Policy will be provided to each production cast and crew member or their parent or guardian at or before the first rehearsal. The producers of each production are responsible for seeing that cast and crew members are aware of this Policy.

Reporting

Violations of this policy should be reported to the THEATRE DENTON Managing Director or to the THEATRE DENTON Governing Board Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion. Reports may be made in person, via email, by telephone, or in writing. It is helpful, but not required, to provide a written record of the date, time and nature of the incident(s) and the names of any witnesses.

THEATRE DENTON will receive anonymous complaints. However, making a complaint
anonymously, failing to provide complete information, failing to accurately describe events, or making a complaint based on speculation, may cause an investigation to be difficult or impossible to pursue.

THEATRE DENTON will take all reports seriously. Complaints will be kept as confidential as reasonably possible. The identities of parties and witnesses must normally be disclosed to the complainant, respondent, and witnesses involved.
