On November 1, 2013 Bill 14 was passed and the Workers Compensation Act within this Bill was modified. This change directly affected the WorkSafeBC rules on preventing bullying and harassment in the workplace.
Employers are now required to take all ‘reasonable steps’ to ensure the health and safety of their employees as it relates to bullying and harassment. To achieve this the College of New Caledonia is committed to providing a working and learning environment that allows for full and free participation of all members of the institutional community.
Both WorkSafeBC and the Collective Agreement language have provided a foundation for the College to incorporate mandatory training to promote a ‘Respectful Workplace.’ To ensure compliance the College has entered into an agreement with Frame and Associates Consulting Inc. to provide CNC with web-based training. Both the administrative and employee versions of the on-line training packages are available and you will need your employee number in order to complete this training.
