In a new webinar, lawyers from the firm discuss the new requirements for Ontario employers to prevent sexual violence and harassment in the workplace after amendments to Bill 132 came into effect on September 8, 2016. The new requirements revise the definition of “workplace harassment”, impose new requirements for workplace harassment prevention programs and establish new requirements for conducting internal investigations. The Ontario Ministry of Labour has also prepared a recent Code of Practice that will be highly informative for employers needing to comply with these new requirements.
This audio webinar examines:
- The new requirements;
- Best practices in implementation of a workplace harassment policy and program;
- How to conduct an appropriate investigation into a complaint of harassment; and
- Strategies for providing information and instruction to workers in compliance with the law.
