Effective September 8, 2016 Bill 132 requires UPDATED Training for ALL Employers, Supervisors, and Workers in Ontario.

What Does This Mean for You?

All employers, supervisors, and workers will be required to complete Workplace Violence and Harassment training that includes changes brought forth by Bill 132 as of September 8, 2016.

Bill 132 will require that your current policy be refined so that the definition of workplace violence and harassment includes sexual violence and harassment. It also demands updating of current processes, as the program must now include steps for reporting a complaint when the alleged harasser is the supervisor or manager.

Under Bill 132 you will be required to investigate all complaints of workplace violence and harassment, including sexual harassment. Additionally, under some circumstances, the Ministry of Labour may order a third party investigation at the expense of the employer.
