Helping companies comply with changing workplace legislation that impacts corporate and personal liability.

UPDATE: Sept. 8 2016: Bill 132 Becomes Law in Ontario

It affects the legal responsibilities for ALL companies in Ontario regarding Harassment in the Workplace

and includes personal liability as well as corporate liability.    

 

 Under the Code, employers, service providers and housing providers have the ultimate responsibility for ensuring a healthy and inclusive environment, and for

 preventing and addressing discrimination and harassment. They must make sure their organizations are free from discriminatory or harassing behaviour.

 

 An organization can be held responsible for discrimination even if it is done indirectly.

 

 Discrimination does not have to be intentional.

 

 Whether or not a formal complaint has been made, organizations must acknowledge and address potential human rights issues.

 

 Organizations that do not take steps to prevent or address discrimination or harassment may face serious consequences.
