What are New Brunswick’s training requirements?

New Brunswick requires that employers implement a training program for employees and supervisors with respect to workplace violence and harassment. Employers are required to establish a written code of practice for harassment at the place of employment to ensure the health and safety of employees to the extent possible.

What should harassment training in New Brunswick cover? 

Training is one of the most effective steps an employer can take to prevent harassment (including sexual harassment) in the workplace. While the content of harassment training is not specified by statute or policy in New Brunswick, the law requires employers to identify their training needs in the written code of practice for harassment. The training should occur every year at a minimum.

Who does this apply to?  

New Brunswick’s law applies to all employers for both employees and supervisors. 

What does this mean for you? 

Considering the expansive nature of the law, your business will likely need to take a number of steps to meet the requirements. As a first step, schedule and deliver sexual harassment training to your existing workforce and make a plan for all new hires.
