Bill 14: Workplace Violence & Harassment Policies
The Best Defence is Prevention
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Help meet your due diligence with 2 well-crafted policies on workplace violence and harassment. HR Proactive policies are provided in a Word format so that you can easily customize them to your needs.
Effective July 1, 2012, Bill 14 strengthens protections for workers from harassment, bullying and violence in the workplace covered under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and compensable under Workers’ Compensation Act. Employers need to get ready for these new developments by having a policy in place covering conduct of anyone employed or attending at the workplace, a policy that addresses not only human rights-based harassment and discrimination but also personal harassment, bullying and violence.
Anti-harassment & violence policies need to include a formal internal redress procedure and extensive training of all staff.
Having these policies is the law!
HR Proactive’s policies represent best practices and will help employers reduce their risk of liability.
Policies are available for immediate download.
Everyone should be able to work without fear of violence and harassment, in a safe and healthy workplace.
