Total number of incidents of discrimination and corrective actions taken
We investigate any discrimination incidents, reported through various channels, which could affect the company's employees.
In 2016 investigations were conducted into five cases of harassment, in accordance with the Repsol group's harassment prevention protocol. All of them were dismissed because no harassment was detected. Due to confidentiality regulations in Spain, we cannot provide any further details on the claims, investigations, processes or outcomes.
In the United States, there are eight incidents of discrimination. Five out of eight are related to labor contract expiration. Four out of eight complaints are closed and the remaining four are being processed. The investigation of one of the closed complaints revealed the existence of the alleged facts and we adopted the pertinent measures.
There are two cases of harassment under investigation in Canada. There was evidence of the alleged fact and the claim was closed after the pertinent measures were adopted. The other claim is being processed.
