The case of Luis Rubiales, president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), who kissed the football player Jennifer Hermoso, without her consent, during the celebration of Spain’s victory in the Women’s World Cup, has made headlines around the world and raises awareness about this topic, which is new for many cultures and countries.

As a result, from this situation, we can learn and implement actions within our companies:

Preventing inappropriate behavior in any setting involves the implementation of clear policies and practices.

Policies and Standards: Establish clear policies and Codes of Conduct that explicitly prohibit any form of harassment, abuse, or inappropriate behavior.

Dissemination: Ensure that all members of the Company are aware of these Policies.

Training: Provide regular training regarding respect, consent, and professional behavior to all involved parties.

Reporting and Complaints: Set up confidential and secure procedures for employees to report incidents of inappropriate behavior without fear of retaliation.

Supervision: Implement supervision and monitoring systems to ensure a safe and respectful environment.

Investigation and Action: Handle all complaints seriously and conduct impartial and thorough investigations in case of incidents. Instill appropriate disciplinary measures if inappropriate behavior is confirmed.

Supportive Environment: Create an atmosphere that encourages respect, open communication, and mutual support among all employees.

Review and Update: Regularly assess and adjust Prevention Policies and Practices to ensure they are up-to-date and effective.


EC Rubio is a Leading Firm in this practice, we have implemented lots of protocols, delivered hundreds of hours of training, and conducted loads of internal investigations. We understand the importance of the matter and approach it in a serious and professional manner.
