Unveiling of an essential management tool!
MONTREAL, June 7, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The official release of the video "Workplace Harassment: Prevention and Management" will be held in Montreal on June 8th 2013. Persons of distinction such as the Honourable Michèle Rivet, first president of the Human Rights Tribunal of Quebec and Ms. Bonnie Robichaud, first woman to win a sexual harassment trial before the Supreme Court, will be present. Also, gather and meet people who have experienced different situations of workplace harassment from both the public sector (provincial and federal) as well as the private sector.
The first bilingual video addressing sexual and psychological harassment in the workplace is now available for anyone interested by the topic. The GAIHST teamed up with the production house Video Femmes to deliver this product, unique in Quebec and in Canada.
"Workplace Harassment: Prevention and Management" is an awareness tool addressed mainly to small and medium business owners. The feature, approximately 26 minutes in length, emphasizes the importance of implementing internal policies regarding workplace harassment: essentially, "...what is important is to apply the policies, and apply them well, otherwise it is pointless to have any..."
It is through testimonials, expert analyses and counselors' advice that GAIHST delivers its message to us. Dr. Pascale Brillon, psychologist and coach specialized in post-traumatic stress syndrome and Julie Lefebvre, attorney and Protectrice de la personne at the "Société des Transports de Montréal" (STM) discuss harassment from their different perspectives.
