Anti-bullying legislation tabled in B.C.

VICTORIA — British Columbia has tabled amendments to Bill 14 that will expand the definition of violence and require employers to have formal prevention plans. As part of the changes, WorkSafeBC is consulting with stakeholders and working on a policy on bullying and harassment. It will also develop a prevention tool kit for employers and workers. Under Bill 14, workers’ compensation will be expanded to include diagnosed mental disorders caused by significant work-related stressors, including bullying and harassment.
