Obstruction of Investigation or Complaint/Disciplinary Process

Wentworth strives for a complaint/disciplinary process that is fair. Obstructing this process prohibits Wentworth from providing fairness.

Obstruction occurs in many forms through, but not limited to, the following conduct:

  1. Refusal to appear at an investigation, meeting or hearing and refusal to testify.
  2. Falsification, misrepresentation, omission, or distortion of information.
  3. Conduct that disrupts an investigation, meeting or hearing.
  4. Attempting to discourage participation in or use of the complaint/disciplinary process.
  5. Attempting to influence the impartiality of any member of the Institute community or anyone else who is involved in an investigation, meeting or hearing.
  6. Failure to comply with sanctions imposed under the Code.
  7. Retaliation: behavior with the intention to retaliate against or harass another person for reporting a violation of the Student Code of Conduct or other Institute rule, regulation or policy.
