22 Sexual Assault is not a matter to be handled in the Civil Rights/Equal Opportunity arena - it is a criminal matter that will be handled under the Uniform Code of Military Justice or by Civil Authorities as appropriate. The Coast Guard will not tolerate any instance of rape or sexual assault. Personnel who commit acts of sexual assault will be dealt with swiftly and punished severely under the UCMJ or the Criminal court system. Sexual assault violates every fiber of the core values instilled in each and every Coast Guard man and woman. There is no room in our Coast Guard for those who commit acts of sexual assault. There are significant emotional and legal issues involved in every case of sexual assault which must be dealt with sensitivity and with attention to detail. COMDTINST B provides commands, CGIS, medical and support personnel with additional guidance in dealing with cases of sexual assault.

42 Which situation is always considered sexual harassment? Trading advancement opportunities for sexual favors Telling a dirty joke because you think it’s really funny Asking a colleague for a date for the first time Staring at a colleague of the opposite sex It is acceptable to ask a colleague for a date as long as you are not breaking any fraternization rules. It’s important to consider the impact of a joke and how it will be received. Staring, while usually considered rude is not harassment unless you make the recipient uncomfortable. But trading employment or advancement rewards for sexual favors is always considered sexual harassment.
