Consistent with our work culture, Awfis is determined to provide a work environment that is free from any form of harassment. We do not tolerate verbal or physical conduct that disrespects or humiliates another person. This naturally also extends to visitors, community members and other people working or visiting our centers.
Awfis has already put in place a policy for ‘Prevention of Sexual Harassment at Workplace’ for its own employees and visitors as per the provisions of The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 (“Act”), however as AWFIS believes in ensuring a workplace where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity in an environment free of sexual harassment, therefore the present policy is made to address issues and provide for a mechanism towards prevention, prohibition and redress of workplace sexual harassment relating to Awfis community members / users and their visitors.
Sexual harassment of community member occurring at any of the centers or in other situation in which visitors may find themselves in connection with their interaction with community members is unlawful and will not be tolerated by AWFIS. Further, any retaliation against an individual who has complained about sexual harassment or retaliation against individuals for cooperating with an investigation of a sexual harassment complaint is similarly unlawful and will not be tolerated.
