New Anti-Harassment Provisions in Manitoba, Canada

Manitoba has followed the lead of other Canadian provinces by introducing new measures to protect against psychological harassment in the workplace, labour and immigration minister Jennifer Howard announced Thursday.  Changes to the Workplace, Safety and Health Regulation will add new requirements to protect workers from all forms of harassment, including intimidation, bullying and humiliation.

“Manitoba now joins other provinces such as Ontario, Saskatchewan and Quebec in requiring employers to provide protection from such harassment,” Howard said in a provincial government release. “This builds on other measures that protect workers from harassment based on age, race or gender and ensure that workplaces are respectful and safe for everyone.”

Employers will be required to put in place measures to prevent such harassment and address it if it occurs. The province will help develop and implement policies and educate workers and employers about their responsibilities to ensure a respectful and healthy workplace.  View article from Winnipeg Free Press here.
