Pub 552 Revision: Mgr’s Guide to Understanding, Investigating, and Preventing Harassment

Effective January 19, 2017, the Postal Service™ is revising Publication 552, Manager’s Guide to Understanding, Investigating, and Preventing Harassment, to reflect changes to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Management Directive 110 (MD-110) that broadens the language related to sex discrimination. Guidance was added to ensure supervisors and managers are aware that they may consult with field counsel and the manager, Human Resources (HQ/Area/District), when determining the appropriate remedy or disciplinary action.

Language was also added that the manager, Human Resources, will ensure that the completed Initial Management Inquiry Process inquiries are entered into the Workplace Environment Tracking System (WETS).
