As defined by CSU Policy Prohibiting Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Sexual Exploitation, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, Stalking, and Retaliation, Retaliation means Adverse Action taken against a person because the person has or is believed to have:

  1. Exercised rights under this Executive Order;
  2. Reported or opposed conduct which was reasonably and in good faith believed to be in violation of this Executive Order;
  3. Assisted or participated in a policy-related investigation/proceeding regardless of whether the Complaint was substantiated; or,
  4. Assisted someone in reporting or opposing a violation of this Executive Order, or assisted someone in reporting or opposing Retaliation under this Executive Order.

Retaliation may occur whether or not there is a power or authority differential between the individuals involved.

Adverse Action is an action that has a substantial and material adverse effect on the Complainant’s employment or ability to participate in a University program or activity free from DHR. Minor or trivial actions or conduct not reasonably likely to do more than anger or upset a Complainant does not constitute an Adverse Action.
