Workplace Violence and Harassment Law

  • Online delivery
  • eClass
  • 14 hour course, no prerequisites

Work­place vio­lence and harass­ment leg­is­la­tion does not sim­ply involve respond­ing to inci­dents; it also requires an under­stand­ing of the haz­ardous con­di­tions that may lead to vio­lence or harass­ment and ensur­ing that such haz­ards are prop­er­ly con­trolled. This sem­i­nar will acquaint you with the law sur­round­ing work­place vio­lence and harass­ment (includ­ing the recent changes to the OHS Act and OHS Code) and dis­cuss strate­gies to ensure that you and your orga­ni­za­tion are com­ply­ing with the law.
