Workplace harassment occurs when someone says something or behaves in a way towards another that is known or ought to be known to be unwelcome. Workplace harassment may include offensive comments or jokes, bullying, aggressive behaviour, inappropriate staring, sexual harassment, isolating or, for example, making fun of a worker because of their gender identity.
If you feel you are being harassed at work, then you should consider telling your supervisor, manager or the person elected by your employer to deal with such issues. If you feel uncomfortable telling this person, you should consider informing the next available person on the seniority ladder. If you work in a unionized environment, consider contacting your union representative.
If you have any questions about whether what you are experiencing at work may be considered harassment and possibly constructive/wrongful dismissal, what your rights are and/or how to respond, contact Toronto employment lawyers Sultan Lawyers at 416-214-5111 or via email at email@example.com.
