Recent high profile harassment cases have brought attention to the fact that many employers not only lack adequate policies and procedures for dealing with harassment, but have failed to take steps to provide their employees with a safe and respectful workplace.

This workshop will provide both organizations and individuals with a primer on what they need to know to deal with workplace harassment.

By the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the legal definition of harassment;
  • Know what behaviours are considered harassment;
  • Know who can be harassed, and when and where harassment can occur;
  • Identify why harassment happens and what is its impact in the workplace;
  • Understand the importance of an anti-harassment policy;
  • Know what steps to take if one is being harassed;
  • Know how to support someone who is being harassed;
  • Understand supervisor’s and manager’s responsibilities for dealing with harassment;
  • Recognize situations of workplace harassment and discrimination;
  • Develop a personal action plan with respect to harassment and respect at the workplace.
