mHUB is dedicated to creating a safe and inclusive environment for our community. This form is a space for anyone in the community who has experienced harassment in any form to report the incident. Every effort will be made to promptly investigate all allegations of harassment in as confidential a manner as possible. A member of our team will reach out to the person making the report to talk about next steps in the investigation.
mHUB's Harassment Policy
All members and mentors are expected to comply with Public Act 101-0221 which requires Illinois employers to train employees on sexual harassment prevention by December 31, 2020, and on an annual basis thereafter. mHUB provides training to members on a quarterly basis. If you cannot attend one of mHUBs trainings, please contact the engagement team to talk about alternatives at email@example.com.
mHUB has a zero-tolerance policy concerning harassment and is committed to maintaining a work environment free of harassment based on race, color, religion, sex, gender, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, veteran or military status, marital or civil union status, or any other status that is protected by federal, state, county and/or local laws. All forms of harassment are unacceptable.
Therefore, members should not stalk, follow, badger, intimidate, threaten or otherwise impose upon anyone else in an unwanted fashion. If someone tries to move on from the conversation, let them go, in person or online. If a member is explicitly told to leave someone in the space alone, please respect that.
This policy applies to sexual harassment which includes, but is not limited to: unwelcome sexual advances, flirtations or propositions, unwelcome requests for sexual favors, unwanted verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, graphic or verbal commentary about an individual’s body, sexual prowess or deficiencies, leering, whistling, touching, pinching, assault or sexual acts, sexually degrading words used to describe an individual, a display in the workplace of sexually suggestive objects or pictures, or sexually explicit or offensive jokes.
Any member of the mHUB community who feels they have witnessed or they themselves are a victim of sexual harassment by any member, tenant, staff member, client or any other person in connection with mHUB must bring the matter to the immediate attention of
the mHUB membership team. You can do this by approaching a member of the team in person or by email, or you can complete a harassment complaint form on the mHUB member portal which will go to a single individual, keeping the information confidential as they investigate the incident.
A member will not be penalized in any way for reporting such a problem as long as it is done in good faith. Steps will be taken to restrict contact between the member who is alleged to have harassed a member until a full investigation is complete. Every effort will be made to promptly investigate all allegations of harassment in as confidential a manner as possible and appropriate corrective action will be taken if warranted. mHUB will do it’s best to work with a neutral party to support with investigations of allegations. After a thorough investigation, any individual/member determined to have engaged in sexual harassment will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action up to and including termination of their mHUB membership.
