Anti Bullying & Harassment Policy

“The SCA prohibits harassment and bullying of all individuals and groups.

Harassment and bullying includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • offensive or lewd verbal comments directed to an individual;

  • the display of explicit images (drawn or photographic) depicting an individual in an inappropriate manner;

  • photographing or recording individuals inappropriately to abuse or harass the individual;

  • inappropriate physical contact; unwelcome sexual attention; or retaliation for reporting harassment and/or bullying.

 

Participants violating these rules are subject to appropriate sanctions. If an individual feels subjected to harassment, bullying or retaliation, they should contact a Seneschal, President of the SCA, or the Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman. If a participant of the SCA becomes aware that someone is being harassed or bullied, they have a responsibility pursuant to the SCA Code of Conduct to come forward and report this behaviour to a Seneschal, President of the SCA or Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman.”

More details about this policy can be found in the SCA's Bullying and Harassment Policy Document.
