What do you do as a Workplace Investigator or HR
when WorkSafeBC gets involved in Bullying and Harassment Complaints?
This session aims to share the experiences of EMPLOYERS when WorkSafeBC becomes involved in bullying/harassment complaints and mental injury claims in your workplace.
This session will address:
• Is the Employer required to investigate every complaint or report of Bullying and Harassment?
• If an Employee uses the words Bullying & Harassment, does that make it so?
• What typically happens when WSBC gets involved:
– On the Prevention side
– On the Claims side
• What happens if there are Dual/Triple investigations?
