Equal rights and opportunities at LIME
LIME should be an inclusive and inspiring workplace and study environment. We work continuously and systematically for equal rights and opportunities for all and against discrimination and harassment. Promoting equal rights and opportunities involves working with knowledge, norms, attitudes, values and behavior.
Based on the Discrimination Act (SFS 2008:567) we strive towards equal rights and opportunities regardless of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other beliefs, disability or age. The law applies to both the institution as a workplace and as a provider of education. Consequently this includes all personnel and all students at LIME.
The Discrimination Act consists of two parts: the antidiscrimination law and active measures. Since 1 January 2017 the Discrimination Act stipulates that the active measures should be goal-oriented and includes and a responsibility on behalf of the department to investigate and take measures against harassment at the workplace.
Have you been harassed or discriminated against?
If you feel that you are subjected to discrimination, harassment or offensive treatment, you should first contact a manager in your immediate vicinity or HR at your institution. You are also welcome to contact the safety delegate, the head of administration, the equal rights representatives, the union representatives or head of the department.
