    The changing face of workplace harassment

    In 2010, the Occupational Health and Safety Act (Ontario) was amended to include the definitions of workplace harassment and workplace violence, as well as associated requirements for employers. Prior to that, harassment fell under the Ontario Human Rights Code (OHRC) and was limited to the prohibited grounds as defined by the OHRC. However, since 2010, employees have had another avenue to bring forward concerns about workplace harassment and violence: the OH&S Act.
