Working with Your Harassment Code of Practice (2/2)

In 2019, Work­safeNB man­dat­ed that all New Brunswick employ­ers put in place a Work­place Harass­ment Code of Prac­tice. Most New Brunswick employ­ers now have writ­ten Codes of Prac­tice but many still feel unsure about how to oper­a­tional­ize them to meet their reg­u­la­to­ry respon­si­bil­i­ties. In this ses­sion, par­tic­i­pants will get com­fort­able with the ter­mi­nol­o­gy and lan­guage used in their own Codes of Prac­tice and learn how to meet WorksafeNB’s expec­ta­tion around imple­men­ta­tion when an employ­ee com­plaint is received. All from a prac­ti­cal, plain lan­guage perspective.

By the end of this work­shop par­tic­i­pants will be able to: 

  • Ver­i­fy that all 8 reg­u­la­to­ry require­ments are includ­ed in your Code of Practice, 
  • Inform the dif­fer­ent kinds of peo­ple in your work­place about your Code of Practice, 
  • Describe the reg­u­la­to­ry require­ment to act on a dis­clo­sure of harassment, 
  • Rec­og­nize and react appro­pri­ate­ly to a dis­clo­sure of harassment, 
  • Address harass­ment com­plaints involv­ing indi­vid­u­als who are not you employ­ees or volunteers, 
  • Decide between an inter­nal and exter­nal inves­ti­ga­tion of harass­ment, and 
  • Con­duct an inter­nal inves­ti­ga­tion, as described in your Code of Practice.
