Harassment and abusive treatment

No one should be exposed to harassment or abusive treatment at work. Below you will find support for how you can act if you have been exposed or accused.

If you are subjected to sexual harassment

1. Take your feelings seriously

If you feel something is wrong, it is usually it. As an employee, you should not have to endure sexist jokes, a sexist jargon, or harassment.

2. Don't be silent. Speak out.
First of all, make it clear to those who offend you that it is unwelcome. Here you can get support from your nearest manager, HR or AF. AF can also be your personal support when talking to the manager / HR.

3. If the employer finds that a violation has occurred
In the event of an infringement, Scania must take action. This may involve dismissal, warning, relocation, dismissal or, in the most serious cases, dismissal.

4. If the behaviour still continiues
Document what is happening and respond to messages that feel inappropriate. Turn to AF - if you are not satisfied with the support from Scania.

 
If you are accused of sexual harassment

1. Participate in the investigation
If you are accused of harassment, you will be called to a call in connection with the employer's investigation. Before that, you can contact AF, who may be in support of the call.

2. See both sides
Listen to what the perceived violation consists of. Give your version of what has happened and keep yourself calm and factual. Keep in mind that you may have offended someone even if that was not your intention. Respect the other's experience and try to understand. If you have not already done so, immediately stop the behaviour that is perceived as offensive.

3. Let the investigation run
The employer is obliged to create his own picture of what has happened. The fact that words stand against words is common. The employer shall keep all parties involved informed of the progress of the investigation.

4. When the investigation is complete
In the event of an infringement, Scania must take action. This may involve dismissal, warning, dismissal or, in the most serious cases, dismissal. Contact AF to discuss what the various measures entail.
