In March 2019, the State of Georgia implemented a Statewide Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy and Investigation Procedures that promote a workplace free from sexual harassment and retaliation. The Statewide Policy applies to Executive Branch agencies, authorities, boards, and commissions, and is a requirement under Executive Order 01.14.19.02 signed by Governor Brian P. Kemp.
In addition to requiring mandatory training, the policy recognizes the critical role State employees play in creating and maintaining safe, respectful workplace environments for their colleagues and others who interact with state government entities in Georgia.
As an employee, you are required to adhere to and acknowledge that you understand the Statewide Policy. Every employee is expected to conduct themselves professionally and to exercise good judgment in the workplace, whether with fellow employees, business colleagues, or members of the public with whom you come into contact during official duties.
If you have any questions or concerns about the statewide policy, please contact your supervisor or manager, or your human resources representative.
