The president of FHSU is ultimately responsible for
the university's Equal Employment Program.
The Equal Employment officer will assume implementation and
monitoring of the program and will work closely with the provost
to ensure that all matters relating to academic, administrative,
and general service staff are in compliance with the program.
The Equal Employment officer shall, with the concurrence of
the Equal Employment Committee and the president, appoint an
individual to serve as "ad hoc" Equal Employment officer in
the event the Equal Employment officer is unable to serve due
to a conflict of interest. The "ad hoc" Equal Employment officer
should be kept informed on matters relating to enforcement of
policy and be willing to act on a "volunteer" basis.
The Equal Employment officer should be aware of the potential
for conflict of interest to arise in the course of a complaint
alleging a violation of the Equal Employment Equal Employment
or Harassment Policies. A conflict of interest could arise if
the complaint involved any relative of the Equal Employment
officer, if the complaint is alleged against the affirmative
action officer, or if the complaint involved any person with
which the officer has had previous adverse dealings. The affirmative
action officer should be alert to the appearance of a conflict
of interest and will be disqualified from the proceedings if
such an appearance would exist.
