Sexual Harassment Policy

DU PREEZ ARTISANS WORLD believes that you should be afforded the opportunity to work in an environment free of sexual harassment.  Sexual harassment is a form of misconduct that undermines the employment relationship.  No employee, either male or female, should be subjected verbally or physically to unsolicited and unwelcomed sexual overtures or conduct.

Sexual harassment refers to behavior that is not welcome, that is personally offensive, that debilitates morale and, therefore, interferes with work effectiveness.

Behavior that amounts to sexual harassment may result in disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal.


DU PREEZ  ARTISANS WORLD has adopted, and its policy is based on, the definition of sexual harassment set forth by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when:

  • submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of employment
  • submission to or rejection of such conduct by you is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting you
  • such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with your work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment.
