Case study: Bullying and Harassment in the Workplace

April 20 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Do you know what to do when there’s bullying in your workplace?

Occupational health and safety legislation requires employers to provide a workplace environment that is free from bullying and harassment. Employers are required to have policies in place and be prepared to recognize and respond to bullying and harassment, and investigate a situation when required.

This case study will explore a bullying and harassment workplace scenario to assist participants in preparing for a future incident (and to maintain compliance with WorkSafeBC requirements). In this presentation, we will discuss:

  • What is, and what is not, bullying and harassment in the workplace
  • The importance of updating your workplace policies, procedures and prevention plans
  • How to investigate incidents and reports of bullying and harassment
