Everyone is entitled to a safe and healthy work environment. This online self-paced course provides an overview of the regulations that serve to prevent and resolve incidents of workplace harassment and violence in the federal public service. Through examples and case studies, participants will acquire a practical understanding of how to recognize, prevent and report incidents of harassment and violence in their workplace.

Topics include:

  • recognizing the signs of workplace harassment and violence
  • reviewing the key steps to reporting an incident
  • understanding the key steps in the resolution process as well as its outcomes
  • presenting support services for employees
  • identifying the tools and resources in place for preventing workplace harassment and violence

Notes:

This course replaces Harassment and Violence Prevention for Employees (W101), which is no longer available through the Canada School of Public Service's learning catalogue. To obtain a certification of completion, participants must complete this course and attain a passing mark of 80% on the final test.

For additional information, consult the Work Place Harassment and Violence Prevention learning path. Supporting material such as case studies and other complementary resources can also be found on the Harassment and Violence Prevention open learning platform page.

Warning:

The case studies used in this course include scenarios of domestic violence and workplace harassment and violence that some learners may find upsetting. If you need to skip one or more of these case studies, you are free to do so.

Participants are encouraged to complete this course at a time and place that feels right, and to take breaks when needed. If you require support as you work through the material, please reach out to someone you trust. Speak with your manager if you feel you cannot complete this course.

If at any time you feel that these scenarios seem familiar or are similar to what you are experiencing, reach out for help by contacting the family violence resources and services or gender-based violence resources in your area, or contact your organizational Employee Assistance Program. If ever you feel there is an imminent or serious threat to your life or to your health, call 911.
