Description

This new e-course features an improved look and functionality to enrich your learning experience.

All workers in Canada deserve a work place that is free from harassment and violence. However, such incidents can happen, and may go unreported or unsupported. Many employees and employers who have experienced or witnessed occurrences of work place harassment and violence are uncertain of next steps, fear reprisal, or are unsure if raising the issue or filing a complaint is warranted.

This course, specific for workers in the Canadian federal jurisdiction, will help deepen your understanding of this issue, and will review reporting and supportive measures. It will outline the legislation that applies to employers regulated by the Canada Labour Code, Part II, and will present you with relevant examples that illustrate the multiple characteristics of harassment and violence so you can learn how to minimize and prevent occurrences in the work place.

Topics include:

  • The definition of work place violence
  • Identifying risks
  • Legislative requirements
  • Family violence
  • Reporting and response
  • Supportive measures

Upon completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand what work place harassment and violence is and why it is such an important issue
  • Know your risk of harassment and violence because of the work you do, where you work, or when you work
  • Identify occurrences of work place harassment and violence and the steps you should take if you are involved in or witness a situation
  • What you can do to minimize and prevent work place harassment and violence
  • Understand what your employer should do, including legal responsibilities under the Canada Labour Code, Part II and the Work Place Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations

Average time to complete this course is 60 minutes.
