Notice form to report inappropriate operation or misconduct

The member companies of Audiovisual Producers Finland – APFI ry are committed to complying with the employer’s statutory obligations and APFI’s code of conduct in their actions. According to these, member companies are i.a. committed to respect the value of all individuals and will not tolerate any kind of sexual or other discrimination, harassment, or insults.

Possible cases of abuse or harassment should be resolved primarily through one’s own employer. You can use this form (see below) to report if our member company has not followed our operating principles or has failed to intervene in harassment, inappropriate behaviour, or other abuses. APFI and its member companies consider it important that possible grievances can be dealt with at an early stage and that the culture of silence would finally end.

All observations given through this form will be forwarded only to the executive director of APFI.
