Due to the current activity with allegations on sexual misconduct, we are taking this time to remind all members of our harassment policies. Ultimately, PMS Clan has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to harassment of any kind. This policy also applies to all derogatory, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic and any other offensive jokes/discussions. It’s never OK.
We have taken steps to review, suspend and then the remove members who have had allegations and encourage everyone to be mindful and supportive of each other to live up to our mission of creating a safe environment.
The PMS Clan does not tolerate any form of harassment. This includes, but is not limited to:
Offensive signatures, avatars, pictures, jokes, or cartoons
Threatening, belittling, or harassing forum posts or threads, private messages, e-mail, in-game chat, posts on outside social media/websites
Intimidation or physical contact, violence, or assault
Any acts of retaliation or efforts otherwise aimed to discredit, undermine, or sabotage a recruit, member, staffer, or division
The PMS Clan has a "No Tolerance Policy" regarding sexual harassment. This includes, but is not limited to:
Unwelcome sexual advances
Requests for sexual favors
Sending/requesting of explicit photographs or text messages.
Unwelcome verbal or physical contact that is sexual in nature that creates an offensive, hostile, or intimidating environment.
Any member found to be acting in a harassing way, to clan or non-clan members, is grounds for Disciplinary Action or Termination depending on the severity of the offence.
Members accused of harassment may be put on suspension while the issue is being investigated.
Investigations and resolutions should be completed within 7 days from complaints official submission date.
Any member reported to sexually harass any other individual will be terminated immediately if proof is shown of intentional harassment. If no proof is available, then all claims will be investigated by the Division Leaders or Platform Generals who will make a ruling on the situation.
