Employee Safety

Domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual assault are serious problems that can affect individuals, families and communities. The impact of such violence pervades the lives and threatens the safety of thousands of employees every day, with devastating — and sometimes even fatal — results. When domestic violence spills over into the workplace, it jeopardizes the safety of the victim, the victim's co-workers and results in lost productivity and increased healthcare costs, absenteeism and employee turnover.

NWACC has a zero tolerance policy for gender-based misconduct to include sexual harassment, discriminatory harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and other acts of harassment and/or discrimination congruent with our campus policy. 

Northwest Arkansas Community College, to the fullest extent possible without violating any existing rules, statutory requirements, or contractual obligations, will take all appropriate actions to promote safety in the workplace and respond effectively to the needs of employees and students who are experiencing domestic abuse or violence.
