Anti-bullying and Harassment Training
Bullying has become such a concern that government, unions and workplaces are recognizing the issue of bullying must be dealt with. We now have legislation, and many organizations have policy and/or collective agreement language, but we need training to fully understand the issue of bullying and what to do about it as workers, as employers and as a union. This course will educate and provide you with the skills to address bullying in the workplace in order to make it a safe and comfortable place to work.
In this course, you will learn:
Definition of what is bullying and what is not considered bullyingCauses of bullyingLegal requirements – Workers Compensation Board and collective agreement languageHow to address the issueSocial media and cyber-bullying or harassmentPrevention strategies and actions
This course is limited to 23 seats so register early to avoid disappointment.
