Workplace Bullying Policy and Procedures
MSU Denver has instituted the Workplace Bullying Policy in order to provide a safe and productive environment for all employees, including student employees, applicants for employment and others in the working environment, including members of the public.
This policy is not intended to, and will not be applied in a way that would violate rights and responsibilities with regard to academic freedom and freedom of expression, nor will it be interpreted in a way that undermines a supervisor’s authority to appropriately manage their work unit.
Bullying is a form of aggression; the actions can be both obvious and subtle, forming a pattern of behavior where more than one incident takes place. Workplace bullying can involve supervisor to subordinate, peer-to-peer, mobbing (group bullying) and situations when a subordinate subjects a supervisory-level employee to bullying.
