Employer’s Guide to the Law Society of Alberta’s Respectful Workplace Policy

March 18, 2021

The Law Society has launched this new Employer’s Guide, to accompany the Law Society of Alberta’s Respectful Workplace Model Policy, as a tool to help workplaces manage conflict, and address and prevent harassment and discrimination. The guide highlights some steps which an organization can take to effectively implement and enforce its respectful workplace policy. It is not an exhaustive guide, and firms and organizations are encouraged to locate additional resources, training and supports. The Law Society offers the Model Policy and guide as resources to assist lawyers in Alberta in meeting their obligation to maintain a respectful workplace, as required by the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
