Since 2009, the parent company ELEKTROBUDOWA SA has formal rules of equal treatment in employment and counteracting mobbing practices implemented.
The purpose of these rules is to ensure the employees’ right to be treated with respect in their working environment, with respect to their personal interests and dignity, to ensure equal treatment in employment and to counteract abuse, sexual harassment and mobbing.
According to the rules established by this document:
- all employees without distinction of any kind, such as sex, age, disability, race, religion, national origin, political orientation, trade union membership, ethnic origin, belief, sexual orientation, and also irrespective of being employed for a definite or indefinite term or on a full-time or part-time basis, shall be equally treated in establishing and terminating employment relationship, in the terms of employment, promotion and access to vocational training;
- employees have the right to equal remuneration for equal work or work of equal value;
- all internal documents of the Company are prepared with respect to the principle of equal treatment in employment, so as to none of their provisions would cause unfavourable disproportion or particular disadvantage for establishing or terminating employment relationship, terms of employment, promotion or access to vocational training;
- unacceptable are the acts of encouraging or commanding another person to violate the principle of equal treatment in employment;
- unacceptable is any unwelcome behaviour with the purpose or effect of violating the dignity of an employee and of creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment (abuse);
- unacceptable is any unwanted conduct relating to sexual context or with reference to the employee’s sex taking place with the purpose or effect of violating the dignity of an employee, degrading humiliating an employee; such conduct may include physical, verbal or extra-verbal elements (sexual harassment);
- any manifestation of mobbing understood pursuant to the Polish Labour Code provisions as “actions or behaviour referring to an employee, or directed against an employee, comprising persistent and drawn-out harassment or intimidation of that employee which have the effect that the employee’s own assessment of his/her vocational value is compromised, causing – or aimed at – humiliation or ridicule of the employee and/or his/her isolation or elimination from the workplace team” are deemed as highly reprehensible and must not be tolerated. Mobbing practices against inferiors or co-workers is a gross violation of employee obligations and may result in termination of employment without notice at fault of the perpetrator. The Company declares support for those who have been affected by mobbing acts in workplace.
- the employees whose right to equal treatment in employment has been violated or who have been subject to mobbing have a right and an obligation to report the incident to their direct superiors or higher level superiors or Human Resources Specialists. When violation of the principle of equal treatment in employment has been reported, explanatory proceedings are resumed.
