Manitoba introduces new workplace harrassment regulations
By CO Staff @canadaone | October 21, 2010
MB -- Following consultations with employer and labour representatives, the province has introduced new regulations to protect workers from psychological harassment.
Employers will have until February 1, 2011 to become familiar with the legislation and comply with updated requirements to put measures in place to prevent harassment and address it if it occurs.
For employers who are not sure about what they need to do, the Ministry has committed to help develop and implement policies as well as educate employers and employees on their responsibilities under the new regulations.
The new regulations also provide clear direction to employers and workers on the steps necessary to eliminate or control workplace hazards, strengthen the requirements for the use of personal protective equipment and reflect updated standards.
