Managers in the federal public service are expected to understand their responsibilities in preventing harassment and violence in the workplace. This online self-paced course clarifies the responsibilities of the employer and provides information for managers and supervisors at all levels, and for health and safety committee members and representatives, on how to prevent and resolve workplace harassment and violence. Through case studies, participants will learn to identify examples of harassment and violence behaviours by managers and supervisors and acquire an understanding of their responsibilities to prevent and respond to incidents of workplace harassment and violence.

Topics include:

  • defining the responsibilities and relationships among all key stakeholders for preventing harassment and violence in the workplace
  • recognizing actions and behaviours that may constitute harassment and violence
  • recording and reporting incidents of harassment and violence
  • responding to notices of occurrence
  • supporting employees through the resolution process


This course replaces Harassment and Violence Prevention for Managers and Committees/Representatives (W102), which is no longer available through the Canada School of Public Service's learning catalogue.

To obtain a certificate of completion, participants must complete this course and attain a passing mark of 80% on the final test.
