EEO, Discrimination & Harassment

PATH4 Group Pty Ltd is committed to providing a work environment in which our temporary employees feel that they are a valued member of the organization, that they are treated fairly and are given recognition for their contribution to the company’s success.  We also aim to provide an environment that fosters good working relationships. 

PATH4 Group Pty Ltd is committed to ensuring that all temporary employees enjoy equal employment opportunity (EEO). This means that temporary employees are treated fairly and equally when employment decisions are made and that unlawful discrimination does not take place.

We also aim to provide an environment in which people can work without the distress or interference caused by harassment. Harassment is any uninvited, unwelcome and offensive behaviour which involves verbal, written, visual or physical affront against another person. 
Harassment can involve unwelcome and offensive behaviour that relates to a persons gender, racial or ethnic background, religion, political affiliation, sexual preference or personal attributes, colour, physical features, industrial activity, pregnancy, status as a parent or carer, or personal association with a person with any of the above attributes. 

Bullying is repeated, unreasonable or inappropriate workplace behaviour that threatens, intimidates, insults, humiliates, excludes and/or undermines a person or group. Some examples of behaviour which may be considered harassment or bullying include making, displaying or distributing suggestive or offensive jokes, comments, photos or videos; making suggestive or offensive gestures; unfair or excessive criticism; insulting or mimicking a person or group of people and using aggressive language. 

Reasonable management actions carried out in a fair way are not bullying. For example setting performance goals, standards and deadlines; performance management processes etc. 

In all situations it is stated policy that any bullying or harassment is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in any circumstances.   If you experience discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace, you should first make it clear that such behaviour is offensive to you.  PATH4 will take reasonable steps to protect people who responsibly exercise their rights under the policy against victimisation. In any cases where bullying or harassment has been sustained, appropriate action will be taken. Such action may include counselling or in more serious cases, discipline up to or including dismissal. We have a robust process to manage 

If you feel that you have been discriminated against or harassed you should immediately contact your PATH4 Group Pty Ltd representative.  Any complaint will be dealt with seriously and sympathetically. Confidentiality will be respected at all times.

It is our expectation that all times, your behaviour reflects the spirit of this legislation. Discrimination and Harassment in the workplace will not be tolerated and disciplinary action will be taken against any PATH4 Group Pty Ltd staff or temporary employee found responsible.
