Federal and provincial laws guarantee the right to a safe workplace, including psychological and emotional safety. For this presentation, staff lawyers from Community Legal Education Association will discuss the basics of labour and employment law, and how different laws and legal decisions address workplace safety in different ways. This discussion will include the obligations of both employers and employees in creating and maintaining psychologically safe workplaces. We will then review real-life examples of cases in this area from Manitoba and elsewhere in Canada. The presentation portion of the workshop will end with a look at legal resources that are available for those seeking help and information in Manitoba, including CLEA’s Workplace Sexual Harassment Project. Following the presentation, we will leave time for a period of discussion.
