False Accusations

Intentionally false accusations will not be tolerated. Any person who brings an intentionally false claim of discrimination or harassment is subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion or termination. A claim will not be deemed intentionally false merely because there is insufficient evidence to prove a violation of this policy or because it is deemed to be without merit. An intentionally false claim is one made with knowledge beforehand that it is false and with malicious intent toward another person.
