Learning for maintaining a respectful workplace
Harassment and violence in the workplace consist of any action, conduct or comment, including of a sexual nature, that can reasonably be expected to cause offence, humiliation or other physical or psychological injury or illness to an employee, including any prescribed action, conduct or comment. Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada recognize that legislation is not enough to end harassment and violence in the workplace. A culture change is required to prevent harassment and violence, and to respond to and support employees when it happens.
The following training and resources are available to support employees, managers and teams in building and maintaining a workplace free from violence and harassment.
