Equal Employment Opportunity Policy (Global)

糖心Vlog鈥檚 (鈥淲BD鈥) goal is to recruit, hire and maintain a diverse workforce. WBD is dedicated to providing a work environment free from discrimination and harassment, and where employees and the non-employee workforce are treated with respect and dignity. All employment actions, including, but not limited to, application procedures, recruitment, hiring, advancement, discipline, termination, compensation, training, transfer, benefits, or other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment conform to this policy.

As an equal employment opportunity employer, WBD prohibits discrimination in its employment decisions on the basis of race, religion or belief, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, civil partnership, familial status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, gender reassignment, transgender status, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy, maternity or military and veteran status, or on the perception that an employee has any of these characteristics or is associated with a person who has, or is perceived as having, any of these characteristics, or on any other basis that would be in violation of any applicable federal, state/country, or local law. Our commitment to equal opportunity employment applies to all persons involved in our operations and prohibits unlawful discrimination by any employee or member of our non-employee workforce.

It is the responsibility of each manager within WBD to ensure implementation of these policies to avoid any discrimination or harassment in employment. All employees and members of our non-employee workforce are expected to recognize these policies and cooperate with their implementation. Violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment or engagement. 

The Company recognizes that the requirements related to this policy vary from country to country and this policy should be carried out with regard to and consideration of local laws and practices.
