Equity Bank manager has been fired following sexual harassment claims leveled against him through a face book post on the Bank’s public account in October.
The bank through its designated Chairman David Ansel has therefore thus took the disciplinary actions against the manager whose name was undisclosed.
He is alleged to have made inappropriate sexual advances to the interns during the Equity Leaders Programme on October 28.
“The Group has taken necessary measures in line with its policies and procedures, including disciplinary measures, and in some cases termination/separation of employment of certain staff,” said David Ansell.
“Sexual harassment/assault in the workplace is totally unacceptable. We at Equity Group have chosen to share our experience openly and raise awareness on this issue of public interest,” he added.
The dismissal comes after a month-long investigation into the manager’s conduct following a Face-book post made by the interns on October 3.
The bank however said that it will keep the confidentiality of both the accused and those who raised concerns.
The bank said that it had also provided the accused with necessary support before informing him of the outcome of the process.
