According to the Equal Opportunity Office officials, harassment can take many forms - none of which will be tolerated at Robins. 

While sexual harassment grabs the headlines, other types of offensive or degrading behavior exist causing just as much turmoil in the workplace.

Known in the EEO arena as non-sexual harassment, this behavior includes any type of repeated abusive or demeaning conduct based on a person's race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion, reprisal, genetic information or disability. 

The message the EEO Office would like to send out to people is that there is zero tolerance for any form of discrimination including non-sexual harassment.

Managers and supervisors must encourage a work environment that works for everyone and is free from unlawful discrimination or harassment to include sexual harassment. 

To ensure that message is heard loud and clear, the EEO Office, provides an avenue for employees who feel they have been discriminated against.

Employees are encouraged to participate in, and benefit from programs and activities at Robins to enhance a work place free of any form of discrimination.
