Code Of Ethics

This Code of Conduct is a guidance note to employers engaged in workplace based learning programs that describes the standards that employers should meet to ensure a safe learning environment for trainees that respects human rights and labor rights. Its articles reflect national labor law and related regulations, international conventions Lebanon has ratified, core labor standards that apply to all ILO member states, and international good practices. The Code of Conduct will also support training providers involved in designing and developing such programs, and trainees themselves, to gain a better understanding of the ethics and protection measures that employers should observe throughout workplace based learning programs.

Employers implementing a workplace-based learning or on the job training program should make all possible efforts to ensure that all provisions of the labor law and related regulations are implemented in full, and to create an environment for the trainees/interns1 that can stimulate innovation and support the development of their competencies. Workplace-based learning is expected to be a mutually beneficial experience– as the employers will be able to source the skills and talents they need for their companies, and trainees will acquire market relevant skills.

A. CORE LABOUR STANDARDS AND PROTECTION FROM HARASSMENT

The employer will avoid any distinction, exclusion or preference of trainees made on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, political opinion, sexual orientation, disability, national extraction or social origin, which has the effect of nullifying or impairing equality of opportunity or treatment when trainees are recruited and when they progress through their workplace based learning experience. The employer will also ensure the reasonable accommodation of the needs of the trainees with disabilities and learning difficulties in order to ensure they fully participate in the internship, and benefit from it in the same way than other trainees2. The employer will not force the trainees outside the framework of the training to accomplish a task against their will, and will not use threats of penalties for them to implement these tasks. The employer will not recruit children trainees below the minimum age for employment, and will provide a safe working environment to all, with targeted occupational safety and health measures for all children above the minimum age of employment. The employer will refrain from assigning any type of harmful tasks that do not comply with the age and physical capacities of the trainee. The trainees have the right to join the organizations of their choice to represent their rights, bargain collectively and protect their interests. The employer will not interfere in any manner with these organizations, and will allow them to pursue their activities. The employer will avoid all unacceptable behaviors and practices, or threats thereof, that result in, or are likely to result in physical, psychological, sexual or economic harm (including gender-based violence and harassment3) . In the event of a case of harassment or violence4, the employer will:

  • Prioritize the best interest of the trainee,

  • Take steps to immediately separate the offender from the victim,

  • Refer the case in full confidentiality to the harassment focal point in the referring school / training provider,

  • Implement appropriate sanctions against the offender,

  • If the victim agrees, refer the case to police and/or labor inspection authorities.

F. COMPLAINTS

  • The employer will establish a clear complaint mechanism to allow the trainee to report any form of abuse, or violations of the principles within this code of conduct;

  • Complaints by the employer for grave misconduct of the trainee should be addressed in writing directly to the referring school/training provider in a discreet and confidential way.

  • Complaints by the employer for breach of duties or damages to equipment caused by the trainee should be addressed in writing directly to the institute / training provider to agree on necessary action to take.
