Policy on Sexual Harassment

It is the policy of the North Orange County Community College District to provide an educational, employment, and business environment free of unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct or communication constituting sexual harassment as defined and otherwise prohibited by state and federal statues.

Sexual harassment occurs when unwelcome sexual advances are made; sexual favors are requested, or other verbal/physical conduct of a sexual nature is made as either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's educational or employment status and has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's educational or work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive educational or working environment.

Individuals who believe they are a victim of sexual harassment, or have questions about our polices may contact the Director of Equity and Diversity at (714) 992-7720 or email your questions or concerns by accessing the online complaint form at http://diversity.fullcoll.edu.


Drug-Free and Alcohol-Free District Policy

The Federal Government has mandated that as of October 1, 1990, there will be no drug usage by students, staff, or faculty on college campuses anywhere in the United States.

On January 13, 1992, the Board of Trustees of the North Orange County Community College District adopted the following policy statement to comply with the law. The policy, which is to be shared in writing with students, staff and faculty, is as follows:

On November 18, 1988, Congress passed the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988. (P.L. 100-690, Title V, Subtitle D; 41 U.S.C. 701 et seq.). The statue requires contractors and grantees of Federal agencies to certify that they will provide a drug-free workplace. Making this required certification is a pre-condition for receiving a contract or grant from a Federal agency.

Pursuant to the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, it is unlawful to manufacture, distribute, dispense process or use controlled substances at all District business or attending a District event or Program.

The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 (P.L. 101-226) amends the previous law of 1988 to include that it is also unlawful to manufacture, distribute, dispense, possess, use or sell illicit drugs and alcohol in the workplace or at any District activities or events or while performing District business.

Any employee violating this policy will be subject to disciplinary action which may include termination. Any employee convicted under a criminal drug and/or alcohol statue for conduct in the workplace or while on District business must report this conviction within five (5) calendar days to the Vice Chancellor, Human Resources.
