in Online
If a complaint of workplace harassment is made, do you know how to respond, investigate, and report on it — legally and correctly? If you don’t, you are not alone. This 3-day course is a crucial primer for today’s climate. Investigate mock complaints (inspired by our work across the country) from start to finish, build your investigation skills, and learn how to avoid costly pitfalls. The third day focuses on mastering report writing.

My son recently had a birthday and while talking about how he wanted to celebrate, I told him that the country we live in, Canada, is having a big birthday next year and that there would be lots of parties and fun things to do to commemorate the occasion. In typical young child fashion he had a lot of questions and asked me, “What is so special about Canada? Why would we have a party for a country? Parties are for people!” I replied that we are lucky to live in Canada and that it is a very special place, worthy of wonderful celebrations. In the words of former Ontario Premier Bob Rae:

“We have it all. We have great diversity of people, we have a wonderful land, and we have great possibilities. So all those things combined, there is nowhere else I’d rather be.”

I agree. Happy Birthday Canada.
