Harassment

The Coast Guard is committed to a workplace where no member of the workforce will be subject to physical, or verbal harassment, abuse, violence, or discrimination based on an individual’s, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, marital status, parental status, political affiliation, or any other basis protected by law. Simply, it is committed to an environment free of harassing and discriminatory behavior.

Harassment is generally defined as unwelcome advances, requests for favor, and other physical and verbal conduct when such conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interference with individuals, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment. This also encompasses unwelcome display or communication of sexually offensive materials.
