We comply with all applicable laws and regulations concerning equal opportunity and non-discrimination. We do not tolerate any form of discrimination. Embracing diversity is the right thing to do.

Commitment to Non-discrimination and a Harassment-Free Work Environment

We strive to provide a work environment free from discrimination, offensive behavior, and harassment of any type and for any reason. We conduct our operations consistent with the spirit and intent of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other applicable international initiatives.

We will not tolerate:

  • Hostile, offensive, or humiliating behavior
  • Unwanted physical contact
  • Sexual harassment
  • Harassment or discrimination based on religious or political beliefs or lack thereof
  • Harassment or discrimination based on age, color, race, ethnic origin, sex, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, disability status, genetic information; protected veteran status, citizenship status, or any other characteristics including those protected by law
  • Retaliation for participation in any protected activitity

We strive to create an environment where we encourage differences of opinion, free from fear of discrimination or retaliation, where all employees can openly ask questions or raise concerns.

I am working on a company assignment in a country where certain ethnic groups are not protected by local labor laws from discrimination and unfair treatment. What does this mean in terms of how we treat employees in this country?

Westinghouse will not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind in the workplace, regardless of whether country-specific laws do not provide local legal protection for certain ethnic groups. All employees must be treated fairly and with respect.



Discrimination is the treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person based on the group, class, or category to which the person is perceived to belong rather than on individual attributes. Various types of discrimination include, but are not limited to, age, color, disability, race or ethnicity, religion, gender, and sexual orientation.


Harassment covers a wide range of offensive repetitive behaviors that appear to be disturbing or threatening. Sexual harassment includes persistent and unwanted sexual advances.
