In March 2003, WorkSafe BC amended its policies with specific requirements involving recognizing, preventing and dealing with bullying and harassment, which come into effect Friday, Nov. 1.
The new rules require employers to have anti-bullying policies, provide training, and have reporting and complaints procedures for bullying and harassment situations and to keep records of cases. Separate policies guide managers and workers on their obligations to prevent and report unacceptable behaviours.
