The General Equal Treatment Act (AGG)
The goal of the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) is to prevent or eliminate discrimination against employees in the workplace. This is also the goal of our company’s attitude and practice. The entire Schlemmer Group supports a corporate culture free of discrimination. Disadvantages and harassment at the workplace will not be tolerated.
The act prohibits discrimination due to:
- Race or ethnicity
- Religion or worldview
- Sexual identity
The act applies to all phases of the employment relationship – from the job advertisement to the termination of the employment relationship.
“For the Schlemmer Group, the AGG means that all employees around the world can work together in the Schlemmer family without any fear of discrimination."
