Measures at the School of Business & Economics
The School of Business and Economics promotes respectful, benevolent interaction and equality in the work and study environment. All forms of discrimination must be prevented. It is essential to protect against sexual harassment and violence.
Harassment occurs when unwanted gender-related conduct has the purpose or effect of violating the dignity of the person concerned and creating an environment of intimidation, hostility, humiliation, degradation or insult. Sexual harassment is a service offense.
