Canadian Employment Law - Extended Definition of Workplace Harassment Bill broadens and extends the definition of workplace harassment beyond what is presently covered under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
The Human Rights Code has long prohibited harassment in the workplace based on race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, age, record of offences, marital status, family status, or disability. Traditionally, harassment that was based on other, non-protected grounds was not actionable, unless the employer had extended additional protection by way of policy or it had agreed, as part of the collective bargaining process with a union, to incorporate broader protection in a collective agreement.
