Zero tolerance for harassment and discrimination in the workplace

The CRG has a strong commitment to zero tolerance of harassment and categorically disapproves offensive, discriminatory and/or abusive behaviours and attitudes.

The CRG has a strong commitment to zero tolerance of harassment and categorically disapproves offensive, discriminatory and/or abusive behaviours and attitudes. The CRG strives for promoting workplace relations based on freedom, dignity, and interpersonal respect, while maintaining a safe work environment.

This is what the new CRG Protocol for Preventing & Acting Against Harassment clearly reflects. It consists of two strategic dimensions that are fundamental to achieve the commitment expressed by the Centre, which are: prevention and action when facing situations of harassment.

The goal is to prevent, detect, act on and resolve situations that constitute harassment, establishing a procedure to follow in the event that any such behaviour is identified at the institute.

The protocol is based on three fundamental rights:

  • For all persons to be treated with respect and dignity.
  • Full equality and no discrimination in the workplace.
  • The right to health in the workplace.

For this reason, this protocol first identifies the key objectives, as well as its scope of application. Next, the types of harassment are defined, and the actions for prevention, training and dissemination follow as the main idea. The action procedure for cases of harassment is then described. Once the action procedure is laid out, the disciplinary measures, and performance monitoring and evaluations are specified. Last, the protocol provides a formal complaint form, and a model confidentiality agreement (for persons participating in the processing and resolution of harassment cases).

This protocol is a step forward that will contribute to one of the long-standing commitments of the CRG, which is promoting healthy work relationships that respect dignity and the fundamental rights of people in the workplace.
