Bill C-65 introduced new Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations–effective as of January 1st, 2021. What does this mean for your organization?
Federally regulated employers will have new obligations to:
Prevent workplace harassment and violence.
Respond effectively and in a timely manner to incidents.
Support for affected employees.
Based on these three pillars, the new Regulations introduce requirements that all federally regulated employers must meet:
- Implementing joint roles and responsibilities shared with either the policy committee, the workplace committee, or the workplace health and safety representative;
- Assessing the risk of harassment and violence in the workplace and developing a prevention plan;
- Developing emergency procedures for critical incidents in the workplace;
- Developing a new Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Policy;
- Following new requirements, timelines, and procedures related to the complaint resolution process;
- Providing more options for workers to have their issues resolved (respecting employee rights to request formal investigation);
- Appointing a Designated Recipient of workplace harassment and violence complaints;
- Providing mandatory workplace harassment and violence prevention training;
- Providing information on local support services to help employees recover and return to work after an incident of workplace harassment and violence; and
- Record-keeping and reporting requirements.
