Harassment in the workplace is at or near the top of the list of complaints that the Ministry of Labour and Labour Boards receive each year. It is an ‘obligation’ of the employer not only to take these matters seriously but to facilitate an investigation that is appropriate in the circumstances of any such claim brought forth. Failure to facilitate an investigation and/or to conduct an investigation properly could lead to significant fines, legal consequences, and reputational harm to a company.

Join this conversation to learn the following:

• What constitutes harassment in the workplace and what is not harassment;

• When it is necessary to conduct an investigation that is ‘appropriate in the circumstances;

• The essentials of a workplace harassment investigation;

• A few important tips and often-asked questions from clients regarding investigations.
