SEXUAL MISCONDUCT POLICY

 

Date:  DECEMBER 17, 2021                                               CHOI YIN JOY TSANG
                                                                                                Principal and Owner

  • JOY BEAUTY SCHOOL is committed to the prevention of and appropriate response to sexual misconduct.

 

  • Sexual misconduct refers to a spectrum of non-consensual sexual contact and behaviour including the following:
    • sexual assault;
    • sexual exploitation;
    • sexual harassment;
    • stalking;
    • indecent exposure;
    • voyeurism;
    • the distribution of a sexually explicit photograph or video of a person to one or more persons other than the person in the photograph or video without the consent of the person in the photograph or video and with the intent to distress the person in the photograph or video;
    • the attempt to commit an act of sexual misconduct; and
    • the threat to commit an act of sexual misconduct.

 

  • A Complaint of sexual misconduct is different than a Report of sexual misconduct.   A person may choose to disclose or complain of sexual misconduct without making a formal report.  A Report is a formal notification of an incident of sexual misconduct to someone at the institution accompanied by a request for action.
  • A student making a Complaint will be provided with resolution options and, if appropriate, accommodation.

 

COMPLAINT PROCESS AND INVESTIGATION

  • A student may make a Complaint about sexual misconduct as follows:

 

            a)         the student must provide a written Complaint to the Principal, who is responsible for making determinations with respect to complaints.

b)         if the Principal is absent or is named in the Complaint, the student must provide the complaint to the Owner;

c)         if the Owner and the Principal are the one and same person and the Principal is named in the complaint, the student may file a complaint with the BC HUMAN RIGHTS TRIBUNAL; and

d)         the Principal will arrange to meet with the student to discuss the Complaint and desired resolution as soon as possible but within five (5) school days of receiving the student’s written Complaint.

6.         The process for responding to a Complaint about sexual misconduct involving a student is as follows:

a)         the person named in the Complaint will be given a copy of the Complaint as soon as possible after the Principal has met with the student who had made the Complaint; and

b)         the Principal will arrange to meet with the person named in the Complaint to discuss the Complaint and as soon as possible but within five (5) school days after the person named in the Complaint has received a copy of the Complaint;

7.         After the Principal has met with both the student who had made the Complaint as well as the person named in the Complaint,

a)         the Principal will conduct whatever enquiries and/or investigations are necessary and appropriate to determine whether the student’s Complaint is substantiated in whole or in part;

b)         those enquiries may involve further discussion(s) with the student either individually or with appropriate personnel of the School;

c)         if the enquiry or investigation will rely on any communication from appropriate personnel of the School, such communication must be in writing and signed by such appropriate school personnel;

d)         the necessary enquiries and/or investigations shall be completed and a response provided in writing to all involved as soon as possible but no later than thirty (30) school days following the receipt of the Complaint;

e)         if it is determined that the student’s Complaint is NOT substantiated, the School will provide a written explanation of the decision and deny the Complaint; and

f)         if it is determined by the Principal that the student’s Complaint is substantiated in whole or in part, the Principal will inform both the student who had made the complaint and the person named in the Complaint.

APPEAL OF PRINCIPAL'S DECISION

8.         The response from the Principal must specify that the student will have five (5) school days to appeal the Principal's decision regarding the Complaint.

9.         For any appeal of the Principal's decision regarding the Complaint, the Principal must be advised as soon as possible but within five (5) school days of being informed of the determination. The Principal will immediately refer the matter to the Owner of the School.

10.       The Owner will review the matter and if necessary, may meet with the student who made the Complaint or/and the person named in the Complaint as soon as possible but within five (5) school days of receipt of the student’s appeal.

11.       The original decision will either be confirmed or varied by the Owner in writing within five (5) school days after receipt of the student’s appeal or, if a meeting with the student occurred, within five (5) days of that meeting. At this point the School’s process and review of the Complaint will be considered exhausted.

12.       If the student is dissatisfied with the result and feels that he or she has been misled by the School, he or she may file a complaint with the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB).

13.       If the Principal and the Owner are the one and same person, the following shall apply:

a)         the Principal's recommendation shall be deemed to be the Owner's decision;

b)         PRIVATIVE CLAUSE: if the student who made the Complaint, or the person named in the Complaint, is merely dissatisfied or merely in disagreement with the Principal's decision or recommendation and the Owner's decision, the School's student dispute resolution process will be considered exhausted after the Principal's decision or recommendation and the Owner's decision have been made, and there shall be NO appeal or review of the Principal's decision or recommendation, the Owner's decision, or the School's handling of the Complaint; and

c)         if the student is dissatisfied or in disagreement with the Principal's decision or recommendation and the Owner's decision and feels that he or she (the student) has been misled by the School, the student may file a complaint with the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB).
