Tips to Prevent Harassment in the Workplace:
All employers have a legal responsibility to prevent harassment from occurring in the workplace. If it’s proven that an employer knew or should have known that the harassment was occurring and did not take all reasonable actions to stop it, then the employer can be held liable:
- Communicate a clear anti harassment policy. Seek legal advice to ensure the policy is complete and complies with all provincial laws. Once complete, ensure that every employee gets a copy.
- Conduct harassment training for everyone, especially for supervisors and managers on an annual basis. Everyone needs to understand what harassment is and what to do if it happens.
- Managers and supervisors must understand their obligation to maintain zero tolerance for harassment.
- Confirm that employees know their rights and options if they are subject to harassment. Employees must know they have the right to have the offending behavior stop. Employees must also know what to do next if the person involved does not stop the offending behavior.
- Clearly define the process to submit a complaint, including a process for issues when the direct supervisor needs to be bypassed.
- Define clear consequences for offending behavior and be consistent in addressing this behavior.
- Develop a company culture where harassment is not tolerated.
- Make sure that work related activities after hours are professional.
- Confirm that supervisors and managers know that workplace is not a place for crude or off-colour jokes.
- Treat all complaints seriously and always investigate.
- If harassment is occurring, take immediate and appropriate action to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
