Submitted by Robin Frazier, frazier.398@osu.edu

All employees: Annually, all faculty, staff, and student employees are required to complete the sexual misconduct prevention online course, “Report = Support!” The interactive, easy-to-follow course takes about 30 minutes to complete and is available in BuckeyeLearn. It will be assigned to every employee’s BuckeyeLearn transcript each year. 
    
“Report = Support!” will be assigned to all faculty, staff and student employee BuckeyeLearn transcripts on September 12, 2019, and the completion deadline is June 30, 2020. 
    
It is important for everyone to know how to identify and report sexual misconduct, and merit-eligible employees who do not complete the training by June 30, 2020, will not be eligible for annual merit increases that take effect in September 2020. 
    
All Ohio State employees, including student employees, are required to complete this course each academic year to fulfill the mandatory requirement and remain up-to-date on reporting obligations and resources. 
    
Any merit-eligible employee who does not complete the training by the annual deadline will not be eligible for annual merit increases that take effect in September 2020. Student employees, graduate associates and employees who are not eligible for merit increases may be subject to unit-specific consequences for non-completion. Bargaining unit employees should follow their applicable collective bargaining agreements.
