HR 201: Respectful Workplace Matters – Dealing with Harassment & Bullying

Alberta Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) has partnered with TEC Edmonton and Juna Consulting Inc., generously sponsored by Parlee McLaws LLP & ADR Institute of Alberta to bring a series of six essential Human Resource topics to small business owners as well as managers, supervisors or anyone who deals with HR capacity as a part of their organization. This 6 session breakfast series will take place in Fall 2017 in Edmonton, AB.

Join us for breakfast and our next session in the 201 HR series focused on Respectful Workplace Matters- Dealing with Harassment and Bullying at Work

The recent groundswell of harassment allegations in the media (#ME TOO) has caused many people to take notice of human resources (HR) issues. It’s hard to know exactly what is considered acceptable behaviour in the workplace these days, especially when there has been a history of power imbalances and/or a track record of fraternizing between employees.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Explore the spectrum of respect – from incivility to targeted bullying
  • Identify harassment and its negative workplace effects
  • Discuss impact, roles and responsibilities of bystanders
  • Explain rights and responsibilities of employers and employees under relevant legislation
  • List the protected grounds under Alberta Human Rights Act
  • Respond appropriately to allegations of bullying / harassment

Pricing & Location
Each session is priced at $39.00 per person, not including taxes or additional fees. Cost of workshop includes a delicious breakfast!

Location of Session 1: Unit 301 10310 Jasper Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB
Time: 7:30 am to 9:00 am
