Newfoundland and Labrador’s mandates: Regulation ss. 24.1 and 24.2 of the OSH regulations for employers and employees.

What are Newfoundland and Labrador’s training requirements?

Newfoundland and labrador laws require employers to have a prevention of harassment plan, and to provide training on it. The law doesn’t address how frequent the training must be, but does require that all employees participate.

What should harassment training in Newfoundland and Labrador cover? 

Training is one of the most effective steps an employer can take to prevent harassment, (including sexual harassment) in the workplace. Effective training provides a definition and explains what constitutes harassment (including examples of different types of harassment and unacceptable behaviours), and covers an employer’s responsibility to provide a healthy and safe workplace.

Who does this apply to?  

Newfoundland and Labrador’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.
