Has your business complied with new anti-bullying laws?

As of November 1, 2013, B.C. businesses have new obligations under the Workers Compensation Act to take action to prevent bullying and harassment in the workplace.

Your obligations: To comply, all B.C. businesses need to create anti-bullying and anti-harassment policies and procedures around reporting and investigation, as well as train all workers and supervisors to recognize and respond to this issue. Here’s how to comply: What Businesses Need to Know (PDF).

Course requirement: As part of the legislation, all B.C. business owners and workers need to be trained to recognize and respond to bullying and harassment.
