Policy

The Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Group will respect the following matters as a set of fundamental rights in hiring and employment in order to achieve co-existence and co-prosperity with employees.

  1. Prohibition of discrimination: We will eliminate all discriminatory actions based on nationality, race, religion, beliefs, gender, age, sexual orientation and/or disability and will strive to maintain equal opportunity and treatment in hiring and employment.
  2. Prohibition of harassment: We will never engage in sexual harassment, power harassment, or any other form of harassment toward people in the workplace. We will also never tolerate language or actions related to harassment.
  3. Prevention of forced labor: We will strive to eliminate and prevent all forms of forced labor.
  4. Curtailment of overwork and reduction of overtime: We will establish a fundamental policy on work management to curtail overwork and reduce overtime work giving consideration to employees’ work-life balance and their health maintenance/improvement. In Japan, we will comply with the “Article 36 Agreement.”
  5. Prevention of child labor: We will support and practice the effective abolishment of child labor.
  6. Respect for freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining: In recognizing that the freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are fundamental human rights that must be respected by a company, in countries and regions where the formation of labor unions is allowed we fully recognize employees’ right to organize, right to collective bargaining and right to strike in labor agreements. In addition, even in countries and regions that do not allow the formation of labor unions due to laws or practice, we will effectively promote conflict resolution through dialogue involving management and labor with the purpose of securing the freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining.
  7. Payment of wages above and beyond the minimum wage: We will comply with labor laws and regulations and adopt a fundamental policy on labor management in which we will pay wages to employees above and beyond the minimum wage.
