You have the right to work in an environment free of discrimination and harassment. You can find the definitions of these terms in the Treasury Board Policy on the Prevention and Resolution of Harassment in the Workplace as well as the Canadian Human Rights Act.
Have you been a victim of workplace harassment or discrimination?
Contact a Labour Relations Advisor. Our team of advisors will help you determine if your complaint falls within the definitions mentioned above. And if it doesn’t, we can help you explore other options.
Keep track of the details. As with all formal complaints, it is critical to document the events. Please keep records of relevant emails, phone calls and voice mails. Then establish a clear timeline of events. The more information you can provide us with, the better we can help you.
Don’t hesitate. There are strict deadlines involved in filing these types of complaints. Contact us as soon as you believe you have been harassed or discriminated against.
