Since Quebec’s workplace bullying law went into effect three months ago, nearly 500 complaints have been filed according to statistics from the province’s labour standards board.

The board expects more than 2,000 complaints will be filed in the first year, up from an initial projection of 1,700.

According to a report by The Canadian Press, nearly a quarter of the complaints received so far have been dismissed because they weren’t justified, didn’t meet the criteria or were resolved.
