Bill C-65 Explained: An expert forum on the new federal violence and harassment regulations

In the midst of the pandemic, federally regulated employers and the unions representing their employees have been tasked with taking significant new steps to combat workplace harassment and violence. Bill C-65 and the Work Place Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations require employers and unions to 1) jointly assess workplaces in order to identify risk factors that contribute to harassment and violence; 2) put in place measures that mitigate identified risks; 3) establish emergency procedures for situations in which violence and harassment pose an immediate danger to employee health and safety; and 4) establish and implement new procedures to respond to allegations of workplace violence and harassment. In this webinar, leading experts will examine these new obligations in detail, paying special attention to emerging best practices.
