McLennan Ross Webinar – Addressing Harassment & Violence in the Workplace

November 15, 2019

Social expectations in the workplace have undoubtedly changed in recent years. The #MeToo Movement has galvanized societal disdain for harassment and violence in the workplace. Governments have responded by overhauling occupational health and safety legislation to impose more rigorous obligations on employers to prevent and root out workplace harassment and violence. It is crucial that employers understand this changing landscape when developing respect in the workplace policies and investigating allegations of inappropriate conduct in the workplace.

Join Dan Bokenfohr and Rebecca Silverberg as they provide guidance on the overarching legal principles and recent case law.

Some of the topics that will be explored include:

  • Applicable occupational health and safety, human rights and privacy principles
  • Policy development
  • Investigating complaints
  • Disciplining inappropriate behaviour and taking other corrective actions
  • Best practices and practical advice

 

Who Should Attend: This webinar is designed for in-house counsel, and human resources, labour relations, operations and safety professionals.
