Horovitz plight prompts policy

GLOUCESTER, MASS. — In the wake of published allegations of sexual harassment by founding artistic director Israel Horovitz, the board of the nonprofit Gloucester Stage Company has adopted and made public a harassment policy.

Playwright and screen writer Horovitz previously issued a statement categorically denying the allegations.

The policy covers harassment relating to age, race, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability or veteran status. It includes definitions and guidelines aimed at dealing with unacceptable behavior which is “personally offensive or threatening, impairs morale or interferes with the work effectiveness of employees.”

The procedure would involve the filing of such complaints with a supervisor or manager who would then inform the alleged perpetrator of the charges before any discipline is imposed.
