Workplace Harassment is a situation in which employees suffer discrimination, isolation or mistreatment by Managers, Executives or other employees. The work environment is a dynamic setting in which disagreements are frequent, however those disagreements can only be constructive when they’re based on professional opinions. Harassment begins when an employee faces continual offensive behavior by others and when this offensive behavior contains actions severe enough to create a hostile workplace climate.

Workplace harassment has a wide range of negative effects that compromise individuals and undermine productivity. Harassment can also result in expensive legal fees and can ultimately damage the Company’s reputation. Employers and Unions have a common, shared interest in preventing harassment and violence.

This training course is designed to outline the Employer’s responsibility in determining the appropriate measures to prevent and deal with harassment and violence in the workplace and existing Laws governing harassment and violence at work.
