Emory University Human Resources says it is investigating a complaint alleging sexual harassment against a former employee.
The university says it will take no further action.
University spokesperson Amy Womack said in a statement that it will not take any action against anyone for alleged sexual harassment.
Womacks added that Emory is taking “all steps to address the situation and provide an environment that encourages the best practices for addressing harassment in our workplace.”
The university said in the statement that the employee is no longer with the university.
The University of Toronto, University of Alberta and McGill University are among those that have announced investigations into the alleged harassment.
University of Manitoba said in December that it was investigating a sexual harassment complaint filed by a former student.
In March, McGill announced a review of its procedures following allegations of sexual harassment and bullying.
The Canadian College of Physicians said in September that it is launching an independent review of sexual health issues at universities.
“Sexual harassment and sexual violence are not new issues for us.
Our universities are not immune from these kinds of problems,” said Prof. Richard Smith, a professor of law at the University of Ottawa.
