The Policy prohibits retaliation against anyone who is raising an allegation of sexual or gender-based harassment, cooperating with the investigatory process in any way (including the complainant, the respondent, and any witnesses or other persons who provide information in connection with an investigation), or for opposing discriminatory practices.

Retaliation can take many forms, including the dissemination of information to dissuade participants and witnesses in connection with the ODR process or to discourage participants or witnesses from assisting with that process.
