3.16 - Violence-free Workplace
One of our overriding concerns at Wells Fargo is that team members and customers are provided with a safe, businesslike work environment. Weapons are prohibited in the workplace unless job-related and specifically approved.
Under no circumstances will we tolerate physical violence or threatening behavior in the workplace, on company premises, at work-related functions, or when you're traveling on business or working from home or another location. Threatening behavior directed at the workplace from your home is also not tolerated. Wells Fargo reserves the right to determine if particular actions are considered physical violence or threatening behavior, and you are expected to cooperate in any fact-finding process - see "Providing Information" on page 18.
Important: Violating the policy against violence or weapons in the workplace is grounds for corrective action, which may include immediate termination of your employment. Examples of Violent or Examples of behavior that would be considered violent, threatening or Threatening Behavior intimidating to others include, but are not limited to: . Profane or abusive language . Threats or insinuations of "getting even" . Physical aggression, whether it's demonstrated or threatened . Dangerous pranks or practical jokes . Aggressive horseplay or gestures . Fighting or other hostile action . Assault or intimidation . Any form of harassment (see "Harassment" on page 30)
Firearms and Weapons Possessing firearms and weapons on company premises, or at company sponsored events, is dangerous to team members and is strictly prohibited. No team member may bring a weapon to the workplace unless specifically authorized by the Director of Security or the Chief Auditor - for example, someone in a specific security or guard position.
For purposes of this policy, a "weapon" means any item designed primarily for the purpose of inflicting bodily injury, which may include items that are legal to own. You are not permitted to have these items at work or while you're conducting business on behalf of Wells Fargo.
