How ready is your workplace to address domestic violence in the workplace?
 
Bill 168 the Occupational Health and Safety Amendment Act (Violence and Harassment in the Workplace) was passed into law in Ontario in 2010 changing the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). It is employers’ responsibilities to prevent and respond to domestic violence.
