More UC employees found to have violated school sexual harassment policy

- New details are emerging about a number of previously undisclosed sexual harassment cases against UC Berkeley employees.

The information came from documents released by the school, in response to a public records act request by the East Bay Times.

The documents revealed that 19 university employees were found to have sexually harassed students or other  employees since 2011.

Seven employees were either fired or resigned.

They included an adjunct professor of statistics who was accused of sending sexually harassing emails, and a specialist in a program for disabled students, who sent texts and emails with sexual innuendos to a student.

None of the employees let go were tenured faculty members.

These previously undisclosed harassment cases, follow recent allegations against several high profile UC employees, including an astronomer, a vice chancellor, a law school dean, and an assistant men's basketball coach.
