  • Workers in Ontario have won tremendous improvements to labour laws in this province.

    One of these wins is that employers (under provincial jurisdiction), can no longer request doctors notes from workers when taking sick days (https://www.thestar.com/news/queenspark/2017/06/08/sick-notes-to-be-banned-in-ontario-under-proposed-workplace-legislation.html).

  • Domestic violence impacts work life. In Canada, over a third of people have experienced violence at the hands of an intimate partner or ex-partner. The trauma and stress that victims experience frequently affects a worker’s ability to do their job.

    Impact of domestic violence at work

    For many, the violence doesn’t stop when they get to work. Over half of those who’ve experienced domestic violence say that at least one type of abuse act has occurred at or near the workplace. This can include abusive phone calls or text messages, stalking, or harassment near the workplace.

    Experiencing violence shouldn’t mean a loss of pay. Victims may need time off to attend medical appointments, get counselling, relocate, or meet with lawyers or police.

  • PSAC's "Stop workplace violence" content aims to raise awareness about workplace violence and bullying in the workplace.

    The following are concrete tools for workers and union leaders to identify and address workplace violence:
