On January 1, 2021, Canada’s Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations (SOR/2020-130) came into force in the Canada Labour Code.

 

All Federally Regulated Employers are now subject to this legislation. This survey will gauge your preparedness on this Legislation. Please take 1-2 minutes to complete this very short YES/NO survey.

 

 

Background

Effective January 1, 2021, all federally regulated workplaces will be subject to the Government of Canada’s violence and harassment regulations (Bill C-65: An Act to amend the Canada Labour Code), which will replace a portion of Canada’s Occupational Health and Safety Regulations (SOR/86-304).

This mandates that employers take a more proactive and prescribed approach to prevent and resolve incidents of workplace harassment and violence. If you are a transportation company with day-to-day operations outside your home jurisdiction (i.e., inter-provincial, and international travel)

The new regulations coming into place will have a significant impact on employers’ responsibilities in matters of workplace health and safety. The new regulations are centered on:

  1. the prevention of workplace harassment and violence,
  2. the response to workplace harassment and violence, and
  3. supporting victims of workplace violence and harassment

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.
