Designated Employees (Mandatory Reporters)
USC Gould School of Law

Definition of Designated Employees

According to USC policy:

Designated University employees are required to report Prohibited Conduct to the VP of EEOTIX to ensure that the University has a comprehensive process for centralized reporting and responding appropriately to notice of sex discrimination. Employees with reporting responsibilities include: faculty, academic advisors, and staff employees, including student employees who hold supervisory positions. In addition, teaching assistants, research assistants, and residential assistants, although not employees, are required to report Prohibited Conduct to the VP of EEO-TIX. A designated employee who is informed of a report of Prohibited Conduct is required to immediately share the report with the VP of EEO-TIX. This duty applies no matter how the information is learned, whether from direct report from a Reporting Party, from social media, or from a concerned third party. The failure by a designated employee to make a timely report of Prohibited Conduct may subject the employee to discipline, up to and including termination and notation in their personnel file. Questions regarding reporting responsibilities should be directed to the VP of EEO-TIX at vpeeotix@usc.edu or (213) 740-5086. (Source: https://policy.usc.edu/discrimination/)

Additional information about providing a safe educational and work environment can be found in USC's Faculty Handbook, Chapter 6.
