United Nations Considerations
to article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter of the United Nations, the
paramount consideration in the employment of the staff is the necessity
of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and
integrity. Candidates will not be considered for employment with the
United Nations if they have committed violations of international human
rights law, violations of international humanitarian law, sexual
exploitation, sexual abuse, or sexual harassment, or if there are
reasonable grounds to believe that they have been involved in the
commission of any of these acts. The term “sexual exploitation” means
any actual or attempted abuse of a position of vulnerability,
differential power, or trust, for sexual purposes, including, but not
limited to, profiting monetarily, socially or politically from the
sexual exploitation of another. The term “sexual abuse” means the actual
or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force
or under unequal or coercive conditions. The term “sexual harassment”
means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be
expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such
conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or
creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when
the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the
perpetrator’s working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes
other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment.
