Occupational Health and Safety & Workers Compensation Group Webinar
When (ET)
Where Webinar Get directions

The federal government has now published its Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations (the "Regulations"), which will come into force on January 1, 2021 along with Bill C-65, the federal anti-harassment and violence legislation.

The Regulations impose new legal obligations on federally regulated employers and modify the existing framework of the Canada Labour Code (the "Code") for the prevention of workplace harassment and violence. The Regulations require that federally regulated employers implement measures to prevent workplace harassment and violence from occurring and the procedures that must be in place to respond to occurrences of workplace harassment and violence.

In this half-day webinar, you will learn what your new legal obligations are and how to comply. Our facilitators will guide you through the legal changes, the practical preparation and implementation of the new requirements. The webinar will provide valuable materials and a model Workplace Harassment & Violence Policy to help you and your organization get started with compliance. 

The topics covered will include:

  • Prevention of workplace harassment and violence
  • Concept of "applicable partner"
  • Assessment of risk factors and developing preventive measures
  • Workplace harassment and violence prevention policy development
  • Working constructively with your applicable partner
  • Preparing for the new federal regulations coming into force
  • Training Your workforce for your new policy & accountabilities
  • Take away knowledge, answers and a model policy
