Disciplinary Procedures

1) If it is determined that a discriminatory act has been committed and the conduct of a staff member or student of the University warrants possible disciplinary action, the University is entitled to invoke relevant disciplinary procedures and take appropriate disciplinary action against the staff member or student concerned.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Procedures for Handling Discrimination Complaints carry parallel procedural stages of initial assessment and formal investigation as the other University’s formal procedures for handling staff misconduct of specific nature[1] with appropriate actions resulting therefrom including disciplinary action (but other than a proposed termination of appointment) to be effected accordingly. In respect of a proposed termination of appointment under these Procedures, the appointee’s appeal, if any, will be handled under the Procedure for Handling Serious Misconduct.

[1] Apart from the Procedures for Handling Discrimination Complaints, the University has the following formal procedures to handle misconduct of specific nature for which disciplinary proceedings may be warranted:
  • Research misconduct should be handled in accordance with the Policy on Research.
  • Complaints about sexual harassment should be handled in accordance with the Policy Against Sexual Harassment.
  • Serious misconducts that are not covered under other formal procedures should be handled in accordance with the Procedure for Handling Serious Misconduct.
