Villanova University seeks to provide a safe workplace for all employees. To ensure a safe workplace, and to reduce the risk of violence, all employees should review and understand all provisions outlined below:
The University does not tolerate any type of workplace violence committed by or against employees. Employees are prohibited from making threats or engaging in violent activities. This list of behaviors, while not inclusive, provides examples of conduct that is prohibited.
Any potentially dangerous situations should be reported immediately to a supervisor, Public Safety, or the Human Resources office. Reports can be made anonymously. Reports or incidents warranting confidentiality will be handled appropriately, and information will be disclosed to others only on a need-to-know basis.
Any employee who violates any of the prohibitions stated above will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination, and may be subject to criminal prosecution. Non-employees engaged in violent acts on University property will be reported to the proper authorities. The University’s Department of Public Safety is responsible for campus security. Therefore, all criminal activity or other safety concerns should be reported to Public Safety.
