Managing, preventing and responding to workplace harassment is the law. But at BizLife, it’s also our passion. We will guide you every step of the way to ensure your workplace is harassment-free.
The Ontario Government introduced Bill 132 to ensure companies have policies and programs to protect employees from harassment. Employers are responsible for providing a psychologically safe work environment with proper protocols and procedures. In Ontario, individuals who have suffered harassment in the workplace can claim damages for mental injury. Failure to comply may result in corporate penalties up to $500,000.
To ensure your company is compliant, BizLife offers the following best-in-class resources and services:
The HEART Program (Harassment Education Advisory Response Team) is the gold standard for preventing and managing harassment at work. Endorsed by the Ontario Psychological Association, HEART is the most sophisticated response to issues of harassment and violence in the workplace. The Program is active in over 1,000 businesses across Canada and the United States.
