Please join us on Friday, April 27 for a “Lunch and Learn” with Steve Dickie and Allison Di Cesare, associates in Osler’s Employment & Labour Practice Group. In this seminar, Steve and Allison will discuss employer obligations in respect of workplace harassment. In light of global conversations about workplace sexual harassment and recent legislative changes in Ontario regarding harassment, it’s increasingly important for employers to have a thorough awareness and understanding of the law, best practices and procedural requirements, including the obligation to institute workplace policies and conduct investigations. This is your best bet to protect against costly payouts, increased liability, and public relations risks.
The presentation will include:
- Best practices and statutory requirements that may apply
- How and when to conduct a workplace harassment investigation
- Case studies to illustrate examples of workplace harassment complaints and how to respond
- Risk management techniques to limit damages and other liabilities
