A Respectful Workplace Policy
has been passed in Mississauga for all its employees that will protect them against office bullies. It will ensure that people can can work, volunteer, learn and participate with respect and dignity.
Bullying will not be tolerated in government offices and city sports facilities.
This new policy will protect 5,500 full and part time employees and politicians.
C-A-O Janice Baker said
this new policy will be there to enforce that all employees are treated with respect and dignity. "Bullying behaviour will not be tolerated within our organization and should that behaviour come to our attention it will be dealt with under this policy and if necessary certainly under the normal disciplinary practices that we have in place as an employer,""We have laid the foundation for a respectful workplace and continue to build on our successes,"
Commissioner of Corporate Services and Treasurer Brenda Breault said Respectful workplace training will be given to all employees to help them understand their role in maintaining and promoting a climate of respect within the workplace.
I hope the schools are as safe as the work place will be against bullying.
