Violence & Harassment Prevention

Bill 168 Checklist to Help Employers in Ontario


Employers in Canada are obligated under the general due diligence clauses of the provincial occupational health and safety legislation and the Canada Labour Code to protect employees from violence and harassment in the workplace.

Many provinces and the Canada Labour code specifically require the employer to have a program which addresses violence and harassment prevention. In Ontario, Bill 168 was recently passed and must be implemented by Employers in Ontario by June 15, 2010. This Bill amends the provincial legislation to impose more specific obligations on employers with respect to violence and harassment prevention. This checklist will help employers to prepare their policy under this new legislation.
