* 13. Non-Discrimination and Harassment Policy (Volunteers)

It is the policy of The Jewish Community Center (JCC) to provide an environment free from unlawful harassment or any other form of discrimination. The term “unlawful harassment” includes among other things slurs, jokes, and other verbal, graphic, or physical conduct or communication relating to a protected class.

For purposes of this policy, any one of the following is considered to be a protected class: a person’s race, color, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation (real or perceived), religion, national origin, age, marital status, disability or history of a disability, veteran status, genetic information, and/or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local law.

Discriminatory conduct is any form of inappropriate behavior that undermines the volunteer relationship or that adversely affects a volunteer’s ability to perform their volunteer role. Discriminatory conduct includes harassment, which consists of verbal or physical conduct that denigrates or shows hostility toward a volunteer because of the volunteer’s race, color, sex, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, sexual orientation (real or perceived), religion, national origin, age, marital status, disability or history of a disability, veteran status or other protected category referenced above. Sexual harassment is only one form of inappropriate discriminatory conduct.

The JCC believes that volunteers should be treated with dignity and respect by employees, other volunteers, leaders, outside parties, and customers. The JCC will not tolerate any form of discriminatory conduct or behavior. All such conduct or behavior will be treated by the JCC as a disciplinary matter.
matter.
 
Sexual Harassment Defined

Sexual harassment means unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and oral, visual, or physical communications or conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual flirtations or propositions, touching, verbal abuse of a sexual nature, sexual pressure or request for sexual activities, sexually degrading words used to describe an individual, displays of sexually oriented jokes or innuendos or any other activity based upon sex which creates a threatening or hostile environment or interferes with a volunteer’s ability to perform their role.

It is prohibited for anyone to make any advances or requests or demands for sexual favors where the submission to or rejection of such requests is the basis of any decision regarding a volunteer’s role or there is an implication that submission to sexual advances or requests for sexual favors is a condition to receiving or being denied any volunteer benefit.

* 14. Non-Discrimination and Harassment Policy (part 2)
Complaint Procedure

If you encounter unlawful harassment or discrimination from anyone, either persons working at the JCC or customers, guests, vendors, or others visiting the JCC, you should:

Immediately report this to your assignment supervisor.
If you are uncomfortable discussing this with your supervisor and or they are unavailable, report this to Human Resources.
If you are not satisfied with how your supervisor handled your complaint, contact Human Resources.
You may also directly contact our President and CEO
 
All complaints will be investigated and will be handled as confidentially as possible and as promptly as possible. Violations of this policy will result in disciplinary action up to and including immediate discharge for employees or discontinuation of volunteer relationship for volunteers.

 Remember that management is not always aware that harassment is occurring. If management is not advised, then nothing can be done to rectify the situation and ensure that the harassment stops. Therefore, it is each employee’s responsibility to report harassment by anyone, directed at him or her or toward anyone else in the workplace, as promptly as possible.

 No volunteer will be retaliated against for having made a good faith complaint or report of unlawful harassment. Retaliation is illegal and prohibited in our workplace. Any person who engages in retaliation is subject to discipline up to and including discharge. Additionally, any person who knowingly makes a false report of harassment will be subject to discipline up to and including discharge for employees or discontinuation of volunteer relationship for volunteers.

Please note that this policy protects all of our volunteers against unlawful harassment in the workplace even if the alleged harasser is not a JCC employee. Any volunteer who feels he or she is being harassed at work by a non-employee (such as a customer) should immediately report the matter to the assignment supervisor or to the Human Resources Department. Appropriate action will be taken to address the situation and to ensure that any unlawful harassment stops.

By signing this policy, I am indicating that I have read, understood and agree to abide by this policy. I understand that if I have any questions about this policy, I should promptly ask them of my supervisor or Human Resources.

Participation in our security policy is a condition of continued volunteering.

Bullying is any repeated, unreasonable behavior directed toward an employee, customer, visitor, guest or vendor that is intended to intimidate, creates a risk to health and safety, or results in threatened or actual harm. Bullying can be conveyed in many ways, including written, verbal, graphic or physical acts, electronically transmitted using internet, email, cellphone, etc.

              -Public humiliation;
              -Hostility such as glaring, clenched fists or a threatening posture.

Volunteers should walk away if they should witness such an act or constructively attempt to stop them. In either situation, the situation should immediately be reported as stated below.

Volunteers should not have illegal drugs and/or alcohol in their system. No volunteer is to pick up strangers, hitchhikers or unknown individuals while on company business. No volunteer may drive on company business without valid driver’s license and insurance.

Volunteers are forbidden from texting, emailing or checking/reading texts or emails while driving for work reasons, whether you are driving your own car or a J owned vehicle. Employees are also forbidden from texting, emailing, or checking/reading work- related texts and emails while driving at any time.

Talking on the phone while driving is only permitted with the use of a hands- free device. Volunteers are strongly encouraged to use common sense and only speak on the phone if driving conditions permit. Best practice is to return the call once you are pulled over and your car is parked so that you are not distracted from your driving or from the call. When driving for work, these rules apply whether you are in your own vehicle or a J owned vehicle. When driving on your own time away from volunteering, these rules apply for all J volunteer-related calls.

Visitors:
All volunteers must follow JCC procedures for guests. Volunteers are not to aid guests in bypassing these procedures. Guests must sign in or swipe in if members. Guests should be escorted throughout their visit to the facility.

Emergency Procedures:
You must know the JCC’s Emergency Procedures and your role as part of them; review them regularly as well as attend trainings as scheduled. Our most current versions are located on the X: drive/Emergency Procedures or contact your supervisor.

Security Cameras:
Security cameras are placed in strategic locations. No volunteer is to take any action to interfere with their operation.

What do you do if you witness any activity or action which is prohibited under this policy?

-Do not put yourself in danger. Should the situation be dangerous, follow our Emergency procedures.
-Report the situation to your Supervisor or Human Resources. Human Resources must be notified immediately, whether by the volunteer or their manager so that an investigation can commence.
-If you have been bullied, it is important to immediately report the situation to your supervisor. If you feel that you cannot be helped by your supervisor, please contact Human Resources for assistance.

What are the Consequences if this Policy is Violated?

Any volunteer engaging in violence against the company, its employees or its property may be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Any volunteer who is in violation of the Workplace Security Policy is subject to consequences up to and including discontinuation of the volunteer relationship.
