Presented by Invest Ottawa partner,
Employees are entitled to safe and healthy workplaces, and employers in Ontario are legally obligated to take proactive steps to reasonably ensure safety and security of their employees. This includes creating a workplace that is free of harassment, and to effectively address complaints when they do arise. With the recent increase in harassment claims, is your company prepared? Are you fostering a work environment that is harassment free? What should you do if/when a complaint is reported to you?
Speaker: Stephanie Lewis
Stephanie Lewis, an employment lawyer from Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP, will be canvassing considerations and best practices when dealing with and investigating a harassment complaint. In her practice, Stephanie has acted for employees advancing harassment complaints, has represented employers responding to them, and she has conducted a number of workplace investigations. She has experience dealing with such complaints from all perspectives and looks forward to addressing any questions you may have.
