WORKPLACE HARASSMENT POLICY
The management of our company is committed to providing a work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity.
Workplace harassment will not be tolerated from any person in the workplace. Everyone in the workplace must be dedicated to preventing workplace harassment. Managers, supervisors, and workers are expected to uphold this policy, and will be held accountable by the employer
Workplace harassment means engaging in a course of vexatious comment or conduct against a worker in a workplace -- a comment or conduct that is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome.
Workers are encouraged to report any incidents of workplace harassment. All incidents should be reported to the office. We wish to emphasize that there will be no negative consequences for reports made in good faith.
Management will investigate and deal with all concerns, complaints, or incidents of workplace harassment in a fair and timely manner while respecting workers’ privacy as much as possible.
Nothing in this policy prevents or discourages a worker from filing an application with the Human Rights Tribunal on a matter related to Ontario’s Human Rights Code within one year of the last alleged incident. A worker also retains the right to exercise any other legal avenues that may be available.
The workplace violence policy should be consulted whenever there are concerns about violence in the workplace.
