Harassment, Bullying & Discrimination Lawyers for Red Deer Employees
Before discussing the legal aspects of workplace harassment and bullying in Alberta, let’s define these terms.
Workplace harassment is defined as physical or verbal abuse that involves actions or comments that can harm or isolate any person in the workplace.
This type of abuse often occurs based on inherent factors such as race, colour, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, nationality, age (usually over 40), physical or mental disabilities, or genetic information. These are characteristics that a person cannot change about themselves and should not have to endure being belittled or mistreated because of them.
On the other hand, bullying in the workplace can take many forms, including spreading malicious rumours, withholding necessary information or emails, and other behaviours that offend, belittle, and humiliate the victim. Bullying is often a series of incidents that follow a common pattern of behaviour.
