New Violence and Harassment Prevention Obligations Now in Force for Federally Regulated Workplaces

January 2021

On January 1, 2021, the new Work Place Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations (the “Regulation”) and associated changes to the Canada Labour Code (“Code”) came into force.

The Regulation and amendments to the Code place substantial obligations on a federally regulated employer to implement preventative and protective measures to address workplace violence and harassment. The requirements are detailed and extensive, and cannot be addressed fully in this briefing note. If you have questions or require assistance, we are here to assist.
