Respect Each Other

Sexual Harassment


Sexual harassment consists of unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances. The harasser can identify with any gender and have any relationship to the victim, including being a direct manager, indirect supervisor, or coworker. 

Is it appropriate to show or tell associates, suppliers or customers stereotypical or sexual jokes in the workplace?

No. It could be offensive to someone else in the workplace. If you’re in any doubt, do not show or tell the potentially offensive material. 

Another associate regularly comments about how attractive I am, which makes me feel uncomfortable. What should I do?

We encourage you to tell the person to stop. If you’re not comfortable talking to the person or the behavior does not stop, report the issue to management, your People Lead or Ethics & Compliance.
