Empowered Workplaces: Say No to Sexual Harassment

This workshop will help you define and recognize what is sexual harassment and sexual abuse, and help you address gender-based violence in a workplace, whether this is for your benefit or to help those around you.

You will hear from expert lawyers, explaining the law in the area of WSH, helping you determine when a concern breaches the law, and how to address circumstances which may pose an immediate physical or legal danger.  They will also review what is generally involved in a workplace investigation for harassment.

You will leave with a better understanding of local resources, what you can do to help someone experiencing violence in the workplace, and your legal rights as a worker in Yukon.

Brought to you by the Yukon Federation of Labour, Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) and Yukon Legal Aid Society.
