HSABC Webinar: Bullying and Harassment Prevention in BC - Managers

May 21, 2024, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In this webinar, Amanda will touch on the foundations set in Bullying and Harassment Prevention in BC. We will quickly cover the definitions, differences, and similarities between bullying and harassment and general steps and best practices to address these issues. Since this webinar is for managers, we will focus on the special duty, responsibility and obligations to curate a workplace environment free from these behaviours, how to address these issues when they arise, and how to repair ruptures in the workplace relationships.
