Harassment and bullying support
The College is committed to making our community an environment which is respectful and inclusive. This includes eliminating all forms of discrimination, especially direct and indirect forms of harassment, bullying and victimisation.
Our Respect for Others guide (pdf) builds on Imperial Expectations and outlines the behaviour and standards that all staff should follow. All new staff should read this Respect for Others guide as part of their induction.
Through the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Centre, Imperial provides:
As a member of staff, who can I talk to about harassment or bullying?
Confidential Care hotline
Confidential Care is Imperial's employee assistance provider. They have an external hotline staffed by professional counsellors. You can report harassment, bullying, or any inappropriate behaviour while remaining anonymous.
Call the hotline: 0800 197 2814
Confidential Care shares an anonymous summary report of key issues each quarter (and immediately after reports) with HR, to help the College understand recurring issues and take action.
Harassment Support Contacts
Harassment Support Contacts (HSCs) are trained staff volunteers. They will listen to you and help you explore the informal and formal options available through the College policies and procedures.
Harassment Support Contacts keep all discussions confidential.
Contact information for each Harassment Support Contact is provided further down this page.
Imperial's Human Resources (HR) department offers advice and support to Imperial staff on a wide range of issues, including harassment and bullying.
HR can answer questions about the College's policies and can talk you through the formal process of raising a grievance.
It's best to make contact through the Staff Hub.
As a member of a trade union, you can ask for advice or support.
Imperial has local branches for three trade unions, Unison, Unite and UCU.
You can find local contact details for each union on the College Joint Trade Unions website.
