The Alberta Human Rights Commission is offering a webinar to describe what is needed to develop and implement an effective harassment prevention policy for workplaces.

Having a policy helps mitigate an organization's liability in harassment complaints, helps support the creation of respectful workplaces and provides a process for management to deal with harassment complaints.

This online webinar will include information on: harassment as it relates to the Alberta Human Rights Act; the need for developing a policy; key elements in a policy; how to develop a policy; how the policy can be implemented; and the Alberta Human Rights Commission's policy review service.
