The company opposes all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination or harassment on the grounds of race, religion, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age or disability.
All possible measures will be taken to ensure that individuals are treated equally and fairly and that decisions on recruitment, selection, training, promotion and career management are based solely on objective and job related criteria. The company requires all employees to abide by this.
Individuals will not be subjected to harassment, intimidation, threats, coercion or discrimination because they have exercised any right protected by law.
KiWi Power is a socially responsible business we expect every employee to share the responsibility of knowing and accepting the principles of integrity and ethical behaviour.
KiWi Power is obligated to understand the basic principles and the specific policies that govern company operations. As a minimum we adhere to these basic principles; working hours are not excessive, no discrimination is practised, living wages are paid, working conditions are safe and hygienic and employment is freely chosen.
Anti-bribery and Corruption
KiWi Power complies with all anti-bribery laws. An act can be construed as a bribe if there is payment, the offering of payment or the promise to pay money or anything of value. KiWi Power does not allow gratuities, favours, loans or any other accommodations from its suppliers or customers that are offered free of charge or at less than market value.
Payments of any kind to customers intended to induce sales, purchases or special favours are prohibited. This includes any form of direct or indirect payment for these purposes to the employees of a business or government or to their relatives.
Antitrust and Competition
KiWi Power prohibits any agreement between itself and its competitors to fix prices for its goods and services or divide markets. Any other agreements that eliminate or restrict competition with competitors are prohibited.
KiWi Power supports workers who raise protected disclosures. Employees do not victimise, subject to detrimental treatment or retaliate against other employees who have made a protected disclosure.
The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 protects employees who raise legitimate concerns about specified matters provided certain criteria are met. The Act makes provision about the kinds of disclosure which may be protected and the circumstances in which disclosures are protected. These rules are therefore intended to comply with the Act by encouraging employees to make disclosures about fraud, misconduct, bribery or other wrongdoing to KiWi Power, without fear of reprisal, so that problems can be identified, dealt with and resolved quickly.
