EEO Policy Statement
Visa Inc. is an equal opportunity employer. Visa is firmly committed to providing equal opportunity in all aspects of employment, including but not limited to promotion, hiring, training, compensation, benefits, transfers, leaves of absence, terminations, layoffs, and recreational and social programs. Visa will not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment in the work place based on any characteristic protected by applicable law. No person will be unlawfully excluded from consideration for employment because of race, color, religious creed, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, veteran status, marital status or physical challenges. Visa also will not tolerate any unlawful discrimination, harassment, or retaliation by employees, supervisors, customers, or vendors. This policy applies not only to recruitment and hiring practices, but also includes affirmative action in the area of placement, promotion, transfer, rate of pay and termination.
Visa expects all personnel to share our commitment to a workplace free of discrimination, harassment and retaliation. Visa will not tolerate violations of these principles and will take appropriate disciplinary action-up to and including termination where appropriate and lawful.
This policy applies to all personnel, including officers and directors of Visa, temporary staff and contingent workers, interns, and volunteers in addition to vendors and customers. This policy covers conduct in the workplace and when company business is conducted off premises.
Reporting Violations of this Policy Statement
All Visa personnel are responsible for keeping the work environment free of unlawful discrimination. Visa will not permit any form of retaliation against individuals who make good faith reports of alleged violations of this Policy Statement, or who cooperate in Visa’s investigation of such reports, even if the allegations are unable to be substantiated.
If Visa personnel or applicants for employment observe or experience any type of work-related discrimination that they believe may be unlawful or which violates this Policy Statement, they should report it to AskHR (AskHR@visa.com), the Business Conduct Office (BusinessConduct@visa.com) or Visa’s Confidential Compliance Hotline (1-888-289-9322).
As a manager, if you become aware of an incident of possible discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, either by receiving a report or by witnessing the offensive conduct, you must report the incident immediately to your HR Business Partner. If for some reason, you do not feel it appropriate to report directly to your HR Business Partner, you may alternatively report it to AskHR (AskHR@visa.com), the Business Conduct Office (BusinessConduct@visa.com), or Visa’s Confidential Compliance Hotline (1-888-289-9322). When Visa becomes aware of a complaint, we may be obligated by law to investigate it, whether or not the complainant wants Visa to do so.
Upon receipt of a report of alleged discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, Visa will promptly investigate the complaint in a manner that is objective, confidential and consistent with a thorough investigation and will take appropriate corrective action when necessary.
Executive, management and supervisory level employees have the responsibility to further the implementation of this policy statement and ensure compliance by all Visa personnel.
