What does this mean for JTI?
Disrespectful behavior, discrimination and harassment are against JTI values.
Discrimination occurs when a person, or group of people, is treated less favorably than another person or group based on gender, age, race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, ethnic background, national origin, or any other characteristic protected by law. Discrimination has no place in JTI.
JTI does not tolerate harassment which is defined as any ongoing or repeated behavior which may pressure, intimidate, or offend someone and lead to mental, emotional, or physical suffering. This includes any physical, sexual, verbal, or written harassment.
Abuse of power, which is the improper use of a position of authority to unduly influence others, intimidation and violence are other forms of unacceptable behaviors in JTI.
We are dedicated to removing such behaviors from the workplace. We have a duty to ourselves and to one another to speak up and to act if something is not right.
