Event Details

Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, employers have specific duties with respect to workplace violence, bullying and harassment.  A continuum of unwanted behaviours can occur in a workplace, ranging from offensive remarks to violence.  As workers may face violence and harassment in any workplace and from any person in that workplace, it is important for employers to address any unwanted behaviours early on, conduct investigations appropriately, and take proper corrective actions.
