After Filing a Complaint

Protective and Interim Measures for Victims of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault and/or Stalking

Oakton may implement protective measures for students who report any of these acts of harassment or vilolence. For student perpetrators, these are also violations of the Student Code of Conduct. Employees who violate this policy will be subject to discipline, up to and including termination of employment. Also criminal acts, perpetrators may be subject to prosecution under federal and state law.

The Title IX coordinator will determine whether interim interventions and protective measures should be implemented and, if so, implement those protective measures as soon as possible. Examples of interim protective measures include, but are not limited to:

  • an order of no contact, adjustment of course schedules,
  • a leave of absence, or
  • a reassignment to a different supervisor or position.

These remedies may be applied to one, both, or multiple parties involved. Violations of the Title IX coordinator’s directives and/or protective measures will constitute related violations that may lead to additional disciplinary action. Protective measures imposed may be temporary pending the results of an investigation or may become permanent as determined by Oakton College.
