What is a Respectful Workplace incident?

Medical staff are bullied and harassed when someone takes an action that they knew or reasonably ought to have known would cause that person to be humiliated or intimidated. When an employer or leader takes reasonable action to manage or direct workers, it is not bullying and harassment.

Examples of behaviour or comments that might constitute bullying and harassment include verbal aggression or insults, calling someone derogatory names, harmful hazing or initiation practices, vandalizing personal belongings, and spreading malicious rumours.

Since this type of incident is a sensitive matter, the health authorities have Respectful Workplace policies and dedicated teams for responding to these concerns. Please contact your health authority and a member of the team will be in touch.

Incidents involving patient aggression or violence are not considered a Respectful Workplace incident, and should be reported through this website as an incident involving violence.
