Similar to other employers across Canada, ABL Employment is working on reviewing and updating our policies and staff training schedules to ensure compliance with the new requirements coming into law in our regions concerning “Workplace Violence and Harassment / Domestic Violence at the Workplace”.
Many provinces and territories have passed, or are in the process of passing, legislation regarding workplace violence and harassment. For example, in Ontario, Bill 168 received Royal Assent on December 15, 2009. The amendments to the Occupational Health and Safety Act will, therefore, come into force on June 15, 2010.
Our management team at ABL has completed a seminar covering the issues surrounding this.We are very pleased to report that ABL is way ahead of the curve and are ready and able to assist you with questions you may have in regards to this bill or how it affects the temporary workers (and others) at your worksite.
