Harassment and violence in the workplace- Worker support
Employers must offer support to workers who are affected by an incident of harassment or violence in the workplace.
Affected workers should be advised to consult a health professional (of the worker’s choice) for treatment or referral. Workers should consider accessing services and resources through an employee assistance program if one exists.
Employers cannot make any deductions from the worker’s wages and benefits if the treatment sessions occur during regular work hours.
