For businesses in Ontario, it’s been just over a full year since Bill 168 was brought to law to address harassment and violence in the workplace. A brief article from the Canadian Safety Reporter reports that there have been over 1000 investigations into complaints involving workplace harassment since the Bill was brought into law last year. The article states:

“The legislation requires employers to assess workplace violence risks and develop workplace violence and harassment policies and programs.

From June 15, 2010 to March 31, 2011, ministry of labour inspectors investigated more than 400 complaints involving workplace violence and issued about 600 orders associated with the new legislation. They also investigated more than 1,000 complaints involving workplace harassment. Altogether, they issued about 1,100 orders associated with the new law.”
