Summary

Read the initial assessment issued by the Moroccan NCP – 31 October 2016


On 2 June 2016, an individual submitted a specific instance to the Moroccan NCP alleging that his employer, a US headquartered audit company, did not observe the Guidelines.

More specifically, the submitter alleged that he had been unfairly dismissed, had suffered physical assault along with threats and insults at the company location and that his employer had refused to declare the work accident that occurred on the same day as the assault.

The Moroccan NCP examined whether this specific instance merited further examination and found that no link could be established between the elements put forward by the submitter and the provisions of the Guidelines regarding disclosure of information.

The NCP also considered that the company did not breach the provisions of the chapters related to employment and industrial relations and human rights.

On 31 October 2016, the NCP issued its initial assessment stating that this specific instance did not merit further examination and closing the specific instance.
