Employer Obligations: Staying Out of Hot Water

Recent case law and changes to the Workers Compensation Act in relation to bullying and harassment highlight the increasing obligations on employers. In this paper, we will outline the evolving duty to inquire in the human rights context, employees’ right to privacy, the changes to the WorkSafe BC legislation and policies, and the obligation to conduct fair and objective workplace investigations and to be forthright when requiring dismissed employees to sign releases. Being aware of these obligations should assist employers in staying out of hot water.
