Violations and reporting requirements: If anybody working for EWSSO is discovered to be in violation of the Code, EWSSO may terminate his or her job or aﬃliation with EWSSO.
Harassment: EWSSO does not accept any physical, sexual, or psychologically objectionable conduct, bullying, threats, or abuse and investigates all allegations thoroughly and promptly.
Preventing sexual exploitation and abuse: EWSSO will not accept the payment or exchange of employment, goods, or services for sexual conduct with a recipient.
Child protection: Physical and/or emotional abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, or exploitation that endangers a child’s health, growth, dignity, or ability to survive is strongly forbidden by law and EWSSO. Children’s personal information must be kept secret.
Forced labor and human traﬃcking: EWSSO prohibits forced labor and human traﬃcking.
Corruption and fraud: EWSSO expects all employees to protect the organization’s resources and assets (money, supplies, equipment, etc.).

Laundering of funds: EWSSO requires its employees to pay or receive money from individuals or organizations who make proﬁt illegally.
