Supporting a Safe and Respectful Workplace

NIH supports safe and respectful work environments that are free from harassment, including sexual harassment, discrimination, or other forms of inappropriate conduct that can result in a hostile work environment. 

Reporting Concerns
Since NIH is not a law enforcement agency, we strongly encourage people to report allegations of harassment or assault to the appropriate authorities.

If there are concerns that harassment, including sexual harassment, discrimination, or other forms of inappropriate conduct that can result in a hostile work environment is affecting an NIH-funded project, we want to know about it. Notification may be done anonymously. Learn what to expect when notifying NIH.
