If you have accused someone of sexual misconduct you may be entitled to receive some accommodations that will assist you in accessing educational benefits or to continue working. These accommodations are called “Interim Protective Measures” because you access them while a complaint is ongoing. Interim Protective Measures are only available after you have made a complaint with enough information to identify both yourself and the Respondent (the person you’re alleging engaged in misconduct). While UWM will evaluate the need for Interim Protective Measures in response to any report, UWM may not be able to implement or continue such measures without conducting an investigation.
Interim Protective Measures may include:
- Housing accommodations
- Work schedule changes
- No Contact Orders
- Class schedule changes
- Class assignment extensions
- Other measures as appropriate
You may work with a Confidential Resource, or the investigator on your case, to identify appropriate Interim Protective Measures.
