Everyone can play a role in ensuring the workplace is free from harassment
Harassment is unacceptable and we can all play a role in preventing it in the workplace by understanding what harassment is and how to report it.
The Saskatchewan Employment Actprovides protection from harassment for workers, volunteers, independent and dependent contractors and secondary and post-secondary students working for or being trained by an employer.
There are three types of harassment defined in the Act. Check out the videos that depict each of the following types of harassment:
Saskatchewan workplaces are required to have a harassment policy and to appropriately investigate complaints. For more information on how to develop or create a harassment policy visit the harassment prevention guide.
If you are being harassed at work, follow the steps in your employers’ policy to report harassment. You cannot be disciplined for reporting harassment. If you are not able to resolve the issue internally, you can make an initial harassment complaint by calling Occupational Health and Safety at 1-800-567-7233, or by completing an initial harassment complaint form found at saskatchewan.ca.
