Reinhardt University reserves the right to determine the jurisdiction of an alleged violation based upon the facts and evidence related to the incident. Reinhardt University reserves the right to adjudicate violations of the Code of Conduct or Employee/Faculty Handbook wherever they may occur.
Retaliating directly or indirectly against a person who has in good faith made a report under the policies of Reinhardt University or participated in an investigation of a complaint of any act as defined in the student, faculty, and employee handbook is prohibited. Retaliation includes but is not limited to ostracizing the person; pressuring the person to drop or not support the complaint or to provide false or misleading information; engaging in conduct that may reasonably be perceived to affect adversely that person's educational, living, or work environment; threatening, intimidating, or coercing the person; or otherwise discriminating against any person for exercising their rights or responsibilities under this policy. Depending on the circumstances, retaliation may also be unlawful. Retaliation under this policy may be found whether or not the complaint is ultimately found to have merit. Complaints of retaliation should be reported to the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students or the Director of Human Resources.
