Harassment in the Workplace: Re-establishing Culture and Confidence.
Social movements such as #metoo movement and #blacklivesmatter as well as the fallout form the Pandemic have led to an increase in the incidence of workplace investigations and harassment complaints. Employees are increasingly using formal mechanisms to mitigate workplace issues which in the past would have been either tolerated or managed by the parties.
The onus of Occupational Health and Safety and Federal and Provincial Human Rights regulations and the fear of civil lawsuits has created an atmosphere of trepidation and concern. We will discuss the post pandemic concerns facing organizations, what can be done to mitigate toxic cultures and what to do when something happens. The session will focus on:
- Identifying best practices
- Managing complaints of harassment and workplace misconduct
- Deciding when to bring in a specialist?
- What are the surprises to expect?
