Anti-Violence & Harassment Policy
This policy is intended to promote a healthy and safe work environment, free from violence and harassment. According to Law 4808/2021, which regulates the prevention and combating of violence and harassment in the workplace, the employer is obliged to implement specific measures to prevent and protect employees.
This policy is part of compliance with that law and commits all employees and company management to act consistently and decisively against violence and harassment.
Violence: Any act or interference that causes physical, mental or sexual injury to an employee.
Harassment: Any unwanted practice or verbal behavior that creates a hostile, offensive or degrading environment for an employee and causes anxiety, fear or resentment.
Principles and Commitments:
1. We prohibit any form of violence and harassment in the workplace, and we are committed to ensuring a safe and healthy environment for all employees.
2. We respect the rights and dignity of every worker and refuse any form of discrimination, intimidation or exploitation.
3. We provide adequate information, training and awareness to all employees on the prevention of violence and harassment.
4. We take all complaints of violence and harassment seriously and we ensure that a fair and independent investigation takes place.
5. We apply strict penalties for violating our policy and we ensure that employees who report incidents of violence and harassment are not retaliated against.

These policies must be accessible and understandable by all employees.
