Gender Equality Plan

1. Aim

The objective of this document is to set out the key components of Opix’s policy in relation to Gender Equality and non-discrimination. Opix is committed to the development and pro-active implementation of policies aiming at inclusive equality, supporting, and encouraging diversity and having an overall high-level of ethical standards, policies, and processes.

2. Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to:

  • Communicate and explain Οpix’s approach to inclusive equality.
  • Explain the responsibilities of Opix’s individuals, agency workers and contractors with regards to equal opportunities.
  • Declare that, wherever words denoting a specific gender are used in Opix’s site content, they are intended to apply equally to all employees without regard to gender.

3. Scope

This policy applies to all Opix staff, including individuals, agency workers and contractors.

Individuals, agency workers and contractors should follow this policy in all their dealings with other colleagues, actual or potential applicants, academics, the public suppliers, clients and other stakeholders. Any act of discrimination by individuals or failure to comply with the terms of this policy will result in disciplinary action or contract termination.

This policy applies to all aspects of employment, including recruitment, terms and conditions of work, training and development, promotion, performance management, grievance, discipline, and treatment of workers when their contract of employment ends.

4. Background

Greek Law 4808/2021 legally protects individuals from discrimination in the workplace and in wider society.

It is part of the existing legal framework comprising of laws 3896/2010, 4097/2012, 4443/2016, 3850/2010, 3769/2009 and 3304/2005 and all together constitute transposition of the so-called Recast Directive (2006/54/EC) on equal opportunities and equal treatment of women and men in employment and occupation. The Recast Directive reflects the Racial Equality Directive (2000/43/EC) that prohibits discrimination on the ground of racial or ethnic origin in a broad range of fields, including employment, as well as the Employment Equality Directive (2000/78/EC).

5. opix’s commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion

Opix is committed to providing equality and fairness for all in its employment and its places of work, eliminating unjustified discrimination on following protected characteristics:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual

All individuals, agency workers and contractors, whether part-time, full-time or temporary, are treated fairly and with respect.

6. Different ways of discrimination

There are different ways in which discrimination can occur, described below.

6.1 Direct discrimination

Direct discrimination occurs when an individual receives less favorable treatment due to their age, disability, gender or gender re-assignment, marital status, sexual orientation, race, color, nationality, ethnicity or national origins, religion or belief, or contractual and work roles which cannot be justified by genuine occupational requirements.

6.2 Indirect discrimination

Indirect discrimination occurs when a provision, criterion, or practice which, although applied equally to all, is such that a considerably smaller proportion of people of a certain group can comply with it and it cannot be justified and is not legitimate. An example of indirect discrimination would be to advertise a job with a requirement that applicants must be at least 6 feet tall. This would exclude most women, and, since it is very unlikely it could be justified as a requirement for the job, it would be unlawful.

6.3 Harassment

Harassment comprises a set of behaviors (active or omissive) that injure or are likely to endanger the physical and psychological integrity of another person, their freedom of determination, sexual freedom, honor, privacy, cultural identity and personal integrity or economic integrity. Harassment covers a wide range of behaviors including (but not limited to):

  • Physical contact ranging from unnecessary touching or brushing against a person, to actual physical contact or serious assault,
  • Verbal and written harassment through making derogatory remarks or jokes, expression or discriminatory views and intimidating comments, pin ups, graffiti, using e-mail to send suggestive an unwanted remark and/or graphics (including pornography) or other offensive material.

Harassment due to age, disability, gender or gender re-assignment, marital status, sexual orientation, race, color, nationality, ethnicity or national origins, religion or belief, or contractual and work roles is unlawful discrimination and, in some circumstances, can be a criminal offence.

6.4 Victimization

Discrimination can also occur through the victimization of an individual who has made a complaint or allegation or given evidence or information about another in relation to discriminatory behavior. This does not apply if the individual knowingly makes an allegation, or gives evidence or information, if the allegation, evidence, or information was false and not given in good faith.

7. How Opix will act on this commitment

Opix will take active steps to promote good practice. In particular Opix will:

  • Promote Equality of
  • Promote good relations between people of different racial groups, between women and men and between disabled and non-disabled people.
  • Promote an inclusive culture and good practice in recruitment, training, promotion and assessment, and good management practice, through the development of codes of best practice, policies, and training.
  • Challenge behavior and attitudes not consistent with this policy.
  • Have due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination on grounds of race, sex, disability, and all other grounds set out above.
  • Subject its policies to continuous assessment in order to ensure fairness and examine how they affect all under-represented groups, especially ethnic minority individuals, women, and disabled individuals, and to identify whether its policies help to achieve equality of opportunity for all these groups, or whether they have an adverse impact.
  • Monitor the recruitment and progress of all individuals, paying particular attention to the recruitment and progress of ethnic minority individuals, women, and disabled individuals.
  • Ensure selection for employment, training, development and progression opportunities or any other benefit will be based on aptitude and ability.
  • Ensure breaches of this policy are taken seriously, are regarded as misconduct and could lead to disciplinary proceedings.
  • Take positive action wherever possible to support this policy and its aims.
  • Publish this policy widely amongst individuals and include it in the Welcome/ Integration kit for all new employees.

8. Procedure in the event of discrimination.

Where it is suspected or alleged that inequality or discrimination has taken place, then the appropriate Opix policy will be applied, for example in the following cases.

8.1 Bullying and harassment

If an individual is being bullied or harassed on grounds of their gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, color, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief, or age, the individual will report it to the Office Manager who will then take action in accordance to this policy.

8.2 Grievance

If the inequality takes place during recruitment, in terms and conditions of work, training and development, promotion, performance management, grievance, discipline and treatment of workers when their contract of employment ends then it may be reported to the Office Manager who will then take action in accordance with this policy.

8.3 Disciplinary action

Where an individual, agency worker or contractor is found to have committed an act of discrimination or fails to comply with the terms of this policy Opix will act according to its internal disciplinary policies and procedures.

9. Responsibilities

9.2 Individuals are responsible to

  • Abide by Opix policies regarding equality and diversity.
  • Encourage and help maintain a harmonious working environment. Recognize that their behavior and actions have a direct effect on those around them.
  • Take complaints regarding equality and diversity and related policies seriously.
  • Raise issues of concern with their people manager in the first instance or with the Office Manager.
  • Make use of support and advice services within Opix when assistance is required.

9.3 The Office Manager is responsible to

  • Monitor the effectiveness of measures to address equality and diversity by collating appropriate statistics.
  • Advise people managers on incidents and issues regarding the promotion and management of equality and diversity.
  • Provide continuing support to individuals by the use of appropriate resources.
  • Give guidance to people managers on this policy.

10. Responsibility for monitoring this policy

  • Internal Third Parties as set out in the Glossary.
  • External Third Parties as set out in the Glossary.
  • Third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them.

We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

International transfers

Some of our external third parties are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries.
  • Where you have given your express consent to the transfer outside of the EEA.

Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.

Data security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Data retention

How long will you use my personal data for?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. Some of our assignments cover programmes spanning a number of years and we may retain personal data in light of this duration.

By law we have to keep basic information about our clients (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see your right to request erasure below for further information.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Your legal rights

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data.

You have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
  • Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
  • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.

No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Time limit to respond

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
