Human Right and Ethics
For Murata Machinery Group's executives and employees, we have established the "Muratec Code of Conduct" to respect our employees' diversity, character, and individuality. Our Employee handbook has also defined that employees shall be treated fairly and adequately in accordance with internal hiring rules provided for separately with no prejudice whatsoever based on nationality, religion, gender or social status.
In addition to implementing internal training programs to prevent workplace harassment, we have made an internal hotline as contact points for consultations related to compliance and harassment, as well as for reporting unlawful activity when discovered. This hotline can be used by every group employee, including temporary staff. We strictly protect the secrecy of the employees who use these desks and prohibit acts of reprisal and detrimental treatment.
