HSBC Holdings plc (NYSE: HSBC)
Inquiry to company made. Response received from Corporate Media Relations Manager Ankit Patel stating: "HSBC does not have a mandatory arbitration policy for sexual harassment claims in the US."
Since HSBC is a multi-national company, a follow-up question was sent to clarify whether or not HSBC requires arbitration for sexual harassment claims outside the U.S.
We also inquired as to whether or not HSBC simply does not use any language at all or requires arbitration by default with an opt out provision. No response received. Awaiting add'l information/response.
