to go above and beyond what is required by law,” Sandberg emphasised.to keep the Facebook office and workplace safe, the social network’s Chief
Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg has announced.

social media gaint Facebook told it decided to publish the policy because it could help smaller companies that may not have the many resources to
develop their own policies, and improve best practices followed in such cases.

“Today we are making them available publicly — not because we think we have all the answers, but because we believe that the
more companies are open about their policies, the more we can all learn from one another,” Sandberg said in a statement on
Friday.

“Our philosophy on harassment, discrimination, and bullying is to go above and beyond what is required by law,” she emphasised.
The social network’s policies prohibit intimidating, offensive, and sexual conduct even when that conduct might not meet the
legal standard of harassment.

“Even if it is legally acceptable, it’s not the kind of behaviour we want in our workplace,” she added. And to set the standard
for respectful behaviour at work, Facebook trains it employees so that Facebook employees understand what is expected of them
right from the beginning.

“In addition to prescribing mandatory harassment training, we wrote our own unconscious bias training programme at Facebook,
which is also available publicly on our People Practices website,” Sandberg said. Facebook has an investigations team made up of
experienced HR professionals and lawyers trained to handle sensitive cases of sexual harassment and assault, she added.

Facebook’s internal policies on sexual harassment and bullying can be found on the Facebook People Practices website, along
with details of its investigation process and tips and resources, it has found helpful in preparing the “Respectful Workplace”
internal training.
