Respect Compliance Office

The Respect Compliance Office (RCO) can be contacted by any person who feels that his or her physical or mental health and/or personal integrity have been affected by acts such as sexual harassment, mobbing, discrimination, violence, etc. in the workplace or at school.

The RCO can be called upon to deal with any situation that has not found a consensual resolution, either autonomously or through the Trust and Support Network (TSN). Its legal basis is the Directive on Psychosocial Risks (LEX 1.8.3).

If the report comes from a witness and not a victim, the Directive on the whistleblowing process (LEX 1.8.1) applies. In this case, it is the EPFL External Ombudsperson who must be contacted.
