Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Conducting an appropriate harassment investigation is a critical component of maintaining a respectful and inclusive workplace. Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, an employer is required by law to conduct an investigation in response to an allegation of workplace harassment. 

Construction employers must address these situations promptly and effectively. For General Contractors, a well-planned and executed investigation is a critical part of a Health and Safety Plan, and it will help management make sound decisions and minimize any liability that may arise. 

The OGCA and Sherrard Kuzz LLP are proud to present "Building a Respectful and Inclusive Workplace: How to Conduct a Workplace Harassment Investigation." The session will be held on February 23 at 10 a.m. (Zoom), at which time Giovanni Cautillo, President of the OGCA, and Michael Sherrard, Samia Hussein and Patrick Ganley of Sherrard Kuzz LLP, will discuss the following topics:

  • When must an employer conduct an investigation?
  • What is (and is not) harassment.
  • Practical tips to structure and conduct an investigation interview.
