- DISCOVER AN ARCHITECT
24 September 2020
Time 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Like many professionals, Architects face the significant challenge of harassment and discrimination in the workplace. This problem includes issues such as sexual harassment and age and gender discrimination.
In this interactive session, attendees will learn from an experienced employment and human rights lawyer. The session will help attendees learn the difference between harassment and discrimination and provide tools for identifying, preventing, and handling workplace violence and harassment. Employees will come away with a better
knowledge of their rights and steps they may take if they believe they are being subjected to this treatment. While employers will learn how to ensure that they are in compliance with the Occupational Health & Safety Act and the Ontario Human Rights Code in order to improve workplace culture and avoid costly complaints. Both employers and employees will better understand their accountability and responsibilities.
The speaker will provide real case scenarios along with practical tools and guidance for handling workplace discrimination, harassment, and violence.
