MADISON, Wis. (AP) — University of Wisconsin System officials are preparing to present a draft policy on employee sexual misconduct to regents.
The Board of Regents in June mandated employee personnel files include documentation of sexual-misconduct allegations or investigations. The regents also ordered UW institutions to share those files if an employee is looking for work at another UW campus or state agency.
A work group drafted a formal policy adopting the mandates and plans to present it to the regents on Friday for suggestions.
The policy requires the disclosure of substantiated sexual misconduct to hiring institutions both in and outside the system and requires campuses to ask about sexual misconduct before hiring any finalists.
The policy is also meant to ensure that personnel files will have documentation of sexual violence and harassment.
