How to intervene to harassment and inappropriate conduct

The Code of Conduct is one way of putting our values and way of working - the foundation of our community culture - into practice. Our responsibility for people is the first pillar in Aalto University’s Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct touches all of us at Aalto University. That means everyone, from students to employees need to abide by the Code.

We aim to provide a non-discriminatory, equal and accessible environment in which employees and students with diverse backgrounds and duties receive equal treatment and are free to study and work for fulfilling professional, educational and other aspirations, without discrimination.

Every member of the Aalto community has the right to be treated with respect regardless of their gender, gender identity or expression thereof, age, ethnic or national origin, nationality, language, religion, beliefs, opinion, political or trade union engagement, family relations, health, disability, sexual orientation, or other personal characteristics.

Occupational Safety and Health Act

Harassment and inappropriate behavior can be defined as irresponsible and illegal repeated conduct that is against good manners and, if continuous, may endanger an employee's mental or physical health. It is the employer's duty to ensure healthy and safe working conditions for its employees and to take immediate action in case harassment or inappropriate conduct occurs (Occupational Safety and Health Act).
