Employee info

You can find some information related to you as an employee at MMK below.

Click this link to read all information as an employee at Stockholm University

Sexual and other harassment is unacceptable at MMK. If harassment occurs, it should cease, so the person affected will be able to resume normal activities as soon as possible.

When an incident has occurred, and the person affected contacts someone in the department

You as an employee have no duty to investigate or form an opinion about the question of guilt. A subjective account by anyone about the harassment is sufficient for you to act according to 1-3 below.

  1. If anyone employed at MMK is aware of harassment, which is not under investigation, occurring this person is obliged to:
  2. Inform the person being harassed about MMK´s policy, and about how seriously MMK views such incidents.
  3. Point out the policy of MMK to the person being harassed, and about how seriously MMK views such incidents.

Report the incident to one of the contacts below or directly to the head of the department.

The contact and the department head must be informed and the incident be recorded, even if the person affected wishes to remain anonymous and doesn’t want to pursue the case. If the person affected wishes to remain anonymous, all persons concerned must remain anonymous.


  • The contact persons are obliged to report to the department head, who has to record the incident.
  • The contacts and department head are obliged to inform the person affected about the procedure for filing a formal complaint and what action the department and disciplinary committee will take.
  • The department head is obliged to interview the person accused privately, to hear that person's version. If the harassment is minor and might be attributable to a misunderstanding an agreement may be sufficient for the harassment to cease.
  • If the person affected wishes to pursue the case, the personnel office should be contacted to contact the students’ union when appropriate.
  • The department head is responsible for promptly communicating the complete decision of the disciplinary committee to the department board and personnel concerned. If the complaint is a student also inform the other students if the complaint wishes.

Following up

The contact or department head will meet the person affected at least three times after the disciplinary committee's decision, or a settled agreement. About one week, a month, and six months after the case is formally closed. On these occasions, the person affected should be asked:

  • Has the harassment come to an end?
  • How do you feel about the response from the department?
  • If the case was closed by an agreement, has the harassing person followed the agreement?
  • Have you been subjected to other harassment as a result of the complaint process?

If the person affected does not feel comfortable talking with the contact persons or department head, then the person may appeal directly to the personnel office of SU.

Please refer to the Harassment and victimisation guidelines published by SU centrally

Honesty, Respect and Equality

At MMK we shall meet each other in a respectful and considerate manner, based on equality. Also when we encounter problems, we shall together strive to find constructive solutions.

At MMK we will strive to:

  • Maintain an open climate in which equality issues, sex-linked values, and the norms at the department can be discussed and challenged.
  • Equal pay for equal work.
  • Equal gender representation in preparatory and decision-making bodies and in nominating committees.
  • Improve equality in formal and informal positions of power.
  • Make it easier for both male and female employees to combine work and parenthood by establishing procedures and an infrastructure at MMK to support projects with members who are on maternity/paternity leave for longer periods of time.
