It is also the policy of Uintah Basin Healthcare (UBH) that non-employed staff and their service environment should be free from all forms of prohibited sexual harassment or harassment based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or other status protected by state or federal law. Non-Employed staff are expected to adhere to a standard of conduct that is respectful of all persons within the work environment. Harassment by any employee, supervisor, manager or third party at UBH is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated by UBH. Any non-employed staff member is expected to comply with this policy and if a violation occurs, will be subject to discipline, up to and including dismissal.

Prohibited harassment includes verbal or physical conduct that denigrates or shows hostility toward an individual because of his/her race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or other status protected by state or federal law and that creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment.

Prohibited harassment may include, but is not limited to, epithets, slurs, jokes, display or distribution of graphic material containing the same or other verbal or physical conduct relating to an individual’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or other status protected by state or federal law.

Prohibited sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or gestures, comments or other verbal, graphic (including the displays or distribution of written or graphic materials) or physical conduct of a sexual nature that creates an offensive or hostile work atmosphere. This policy also prohibits same-sex harassment.

Reporting Violations

Any non-employed staff member who believes that he/she is being harassed by a co-worker, manager, supervisor or other individual in the workplace or service area, whether employed by UBH or not, or who believes his/her service is being adversely affected by such conduct, whether directed at the non-employed staff member or another individual, should immediately report their concerns to his or her supervisor, Director of Human Resources, or CEO of the Uintah Basin Healthcare. Any supervisor that receives a report of harassment should promptly report the same to the human resources department or CEO. A prompt, impartial and thorough investigation will occur. If it is determined that prohibited harassment has occurred, appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including termination will occur. No retaliation or other action will be taken against an employee who makes a good faith report of inappropriate conduct.

It is the responsibility of all non-employed staff members to support and comply with this policy and to stop discrimination and all forms of harassment from occurring within the workplace.
