The University of Zurich has enacted a regulation to ensure protection against sexual harassment «Reglement zum Schutz vor sexueller Belästigung an der Universität Zürich» (in the following RSB). Link to the Zürcher Gesetzessammlung (ZH-Lex)
It is based on the following basic assumption: All university members treat each other with respect. This does not mean that interpersonal relationships at the university should be distanced, purely businesslike and formal. On the contrary, friendly and relaxed interaction between the sexes is desired. However, the regulations state unequivocally that sexual harassment is prohibited and will not be tolerated.
