Government Takes a Stronger Stance on Sexual Harassment

As some of the recent cases we talked about on this blog illustrate (link to article about De Anna Granes), in addition to facing long hours, and strenuous working conditions, workers in the service industry can also often face harassing behaviour from their superiors. While some workers are able to obtain damages for injuries to their dignity and self-respect, many more continue to struggle with harassment due to fear of losing their jobs, or perhaps insufficient knowledge about their rights as employees. We find that often employees themselves believe that such behaviour is the norm and that dealing with it is an "on the job" requirement. By amending the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) earlier this month, the government finally recognized the seriousness of this issue, and made a first positive step to provide better protection for employees.
