This presentation will cover topics related to sexual harassment in the workplace. Given the recent #metoo movement and the increased attention on the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace, it is important for employers to know what behaviours to look for and how to proceed if there is an issue. This presentation will cover the following: How to identify problematic behaviour, including examples from case law; How sexual harassment differs from other harassment; best practices when you receive an internal complaint; what to do if you are faced with a complaint at the Human Rights Tribunal or a lawsuit in Court; The types of damages that Courts have awarded; and prevention and policies to have in the workplace.
