Policies & Procedures

At The Lir Academy, we are committed to providing a safe and respectful work environment for all - whether an employee, a student, a contractor, a supplier, or a member of the public.  No one has the right to harass anyone else, at work or in any situation related to employment.

Harassment is against the law.  It occurs where a person engages in unwanted conduct or language which has the purpose or effect of violating another’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for a colleague.  It may be related to age, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, race, disability, religion, nationality or any personal characteristic of the individual, and may be persistent or an isolated incident.  The key is that the actions or comments are viewed as demeaning and unacceptable to the recipient.  Remember that one person’s joke is another person’s harassment.
