Intent and Purpose
Novateur Nigeria fosters a professional work atmosphere devoid of all sorts of abuse or
harassment, in which all employees are treated with respect and dignity.

This policy explains the prohibition of workplace discrimination and harassment in order
to guarantee compliance with all applicable federal and state rules and regulations.

Novateur Nigeria’s mission is to establish a workplace free of sexual harassment and any
other form of discriminatory harassment or violence.

Definition of Terms
Discrimination – Discrimination includes harassment in the form of communicating,
sharing, or displaying written or visual material or making verbal comments that are
demeaning or derogatory to a person because of their ethnic background, appearance,
gender, national origin, ancestry, religion, age, physical or mental disability, pregnancy or
pregnancy-related condition, genetic information, or other categories protected by the
constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Sexual Harassment – According to the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act, 2015
(VAPP Act) in Nigeria,
Section 46: Sexual harassment means “unwanted conduct of a sexual nature or other
conduct based on sex or gender which is persistent, serious, and demeans, humiliates, or
creates a hostile or intimidating environment, and this may include physical, verbal, or
non-verbal conduct.”
This term is broad and encompasses any sexually-oriented behavior, whether intentional
or not, by managers, staff members, or, in certain cases, third parties, that is unwanted
and has the impact of creating a hostile, unpleasant, intimidating, or humiliating work
Sexual Abuse – Actual or threatened sexual physical intrusion, including unwanted
physical contact, by force or under unequal or coercive conditions.

Sexual exploitation – is described as the misuse of a position of vulnerability, differential
authority, or trust for sexual purposes; this includes making money, advancing one’s
standing in society, or gaining political influence through another person’s sexual

Quid Pro Quo harassment – According to the Society for Human Resource Management
(SHRM), “quid pro quo (this for that) harassment occurs when someone in a position of
authority over. For example, a manager or supervisor directly or indirectly demands
sexual favors in exchange for some benefit (a promotion, pay raise, etc.) or to avoid some
disadvantage (termination, demotion, etc.) in the workplace.”

Hostile Work Environment – A hostile workplace is one where an employee’s or official’s
capacity to perform their duties is unreasonably hampered by the actions of one or more
individuals. The employee could feel threatened or violated as a result of the action.
Offensive conduct manifests itself in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to,
bullying, intimidation, ridicule, and sexual harassment.

Policy Statement
Novateur Nigeria encourages a professional and effective work environment where all
workers and managers are treated equally, with respect and decency. All employees are
required to conduct themselves professionally and contribute to an atmosphere at work
that is free from harassment and disruptive behavior. Additionally, Novateur Nigeria
aspires to be an inclusive workplace free from all forms of prejudice and/or discrimination.

The management of Novateur Nigeria takes allegations of unlawful discrimination and
harassment seriously. In the event that such conduct has been found to have taken place,
the management will act swiftly to impose the necessary corrective measures, including
disciplinary action and training where necessary.

All Novateur Nigeria employees are subject to this policy in all work-related contexts and
activities, whether inside or outside of the office, including business travel and social
gatherings. This also holds true for how a Novateur Nigeria employee acts toward a
client, a vendor, or a contractor.

Prohibition of Sexual Harassment, Abuse and Exploitation
The company’s policy against sexual harassment forbids sexual approaches, requests for
sexual favors, and other verbal or physical behavior of a sexual nature, regardless of
whether such conduct is motivated by a desire for sexual relations, in the following
1. submission to or rejection of such conduct is a term or condition of employment, either
explicitly or implicitly;
2. The employee’s acceptance or rejection of such behaviour serves as the basis for
employment conditions impacting that employee, or
3. Such behavior is intended to or has the effect of unnecessarily interfering with an
employee ’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, humiliating, or
offensive working environment.

Here are a few other scenarios that constitute sexual harassment. This list is by no means
The following are examples of sexually explicit language and behavior that should not be
● Verbal abuse of a sexual nature
● The use of sexually demeaning words, jokes or language of a sexual nature;
conversation or gossip with overtly sexual overtones.
● Obscene or suggestive gestures or sounds.
● Sexually-oriented teasing
● Verbal comments of a sexual nature about one’s appearance or sexual terms used
to describe one; inquiries into one’s sexual experience; discussion of one’s sexual

● Request or demand for sexual favors coupled by an implicit or overt threat about
an individual’s work position or assurances of preferential treatment;
● Unwelcome and frequent invitations (e.g., for lunch, dinner, drinks, dates, or sexual
● Unwanted physical contact, such as bumping, cornering, mauling, grasping,
fondling, patting, squeezing, or repetitive brushing up against one’s body.
● Violence, molestations, or sexual acts
● Posting or disseminating anything that contains sexually explicit items, images,
drawings, or other content is prohibited.
● Letters or messages with sexual overtones sending hateful or discriminatory
messages or materials via electronic means (such as voice mail, fax, voice mail
over the Internet, or electronic mail) that contain explicit sexual language, sexual
innuendo, or remarks that are offensively derogatory of someone’s sexual
● Focusing on certain bodily features of others, sexism-related gestures and leering,
approving of sexual harassment committed by other people.

Sexual harassment is not restricted to forbidden action by a male against a female or a
female toward a male, and it can happen in a variety of situations:
● Sexual harassment may affect people of any gender.
● The harasser does not have to be the victim’s superior, and they can be of any
● The unwanted sexual activity need not be directed at the victim specifically. If the
harassing behavior makes the workplace intimidating, unpleasant, or insulting for
the coworker or interferes with the coworker’s performance at work, the coworker
may be the victim even if the harassing behavior is aimed against another

Prohibition of Other Forms of Discriminatory Harassment
The company’s policy additionally explicitly prohibits verbal or physical behavior that
disparages or demonstrates animosity or aversion toward an individual because of his or
her ethnic background, religion, gender (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, marital
status, gender expression, national origin or lineage, genetics, age, that:

● has the intent or effect of producing a fearful, hostile, degrading, or offensive work
environment; interferes significantly with an employee’s ability to perform their job;
● otherwise negatively impacts an employee’s employment possibilities.
While it is impossible to describe all the situations that may amount to discriminatory
harassment, the following are some instances of behavior that, based on the entirety of
the circumstances, including the seriousness of the behavior and its prevalence, may
qualify as such:
● threatening, intimidating, or hostile behavior related to ethnicity or another
protected class; written or graphic material that disparages or expresses hostility
toward an employee because of ethnic background or another protected class
● And that is posted anywhere on the company’s property, including on an
employee’s desk, workspace, company computer, email, or voicemail.

Employee Conduct Outside of the Workplace
This policy also covers conduct (including both discrimination and harassment) that takes
place outside of the office, whether it be between coworkers or between a manager,
department head, or official and an employee. This includes—but is not restricted
to—behavior that occurs in person, online, over the phone, over text messages, or via
emails. When determining whether the behavior in question outside of the workplace
constitutes conduct that violates this policy, Novateur Nigeria may take into account the
following elements and others:
● Whether the incident happened in any way related to the workplace, such as
during a Novateur Nigeria function,
● Whether the behavior happened during working hours
● The gravity of the reported conduct/behavior
● The complainant and accused offender’s working relationship
● Whether the claimed conduct has a negative impact on the complainant’s
employment or work environment.

Procedure for Filing Complaints
1. Sexual or other forms of discriminatory harassment must be reported immediately
to the relevant authority, which is the Human Resources Administrator.
2. Employees are highly urged to report any instances of sexual or racial harassment
in writing, even if such reports may be made verbally. The investigation procedure
is made easier with written allegations of harassment.
3. In the event that a complaint is received, the management board and the human
resources administrator will swiftly conduct a discrete and private investigation.
Normally, the investigation will involve speaking privately with the complainant
and any relevant witnesses.
4. The individual who is allegedly responsible for the harassment will often be
interviewed as part of the investigation.
5. When the investigation is completed, the Human Resources Administrator or the
management board will, to the extent possible, inform the person who filed the
complaint and the person claimed to have committed the misconduct of the
6. The company will take any disciplinary action it considers necessary, including but
not limited to counseling, warnings, transfers, suspensions, and job termination, if
it decides that a breach of this policy has occurred.
7. Additionally, if the company believes that conduct that does not fall within the
categories in this policy is still improper, unprofessional, or calls for discipline in
any way, it can and will take whatever disciplinary action it deems necessary.

Retaliation is prohibited by law and will not be permitted, whether it be directed at the
person who files the complaint or at individuals who could assist in the investigation of a
harassment claim. Retaliation-related offenses will result in disciplinary action, which
may include dismissal from one’s job or removal from a position in an elected or
appointed body.
Retaliation can be either blatant or subtle. This includes, but is not limited to, treating a
complainant or witness differently, harshly, or hostilely; physically interfering with
movement, such as blocking a way; insulting statements or conduct that seeks to frighten
