No workplace is immune to harassment, bullying and violence. It can occur in any workplace to any employee. Employers must maintain a harassment-free work environment and take action if a worker is being harassed, bullied or discriminated against, or involved in a violent situation, by another worker or supervisor, a customer, member of the public, agent of the employer, or contractor.
Our ‘Prevent Harassment, Bullying & Violence in the Workplace’ is a 2.5 hour virtual, instructor-led training session for employees, presented using an online platform such as Zoom or Skype. This program can help ensure compliance with human rights legislation and the Occupational Health & Safety Act, and avoid costly complaints.
