#2 - All inappropriate workplace behaviours

16:59 - This video addresses all kinds of inappropriate workplace behaviours you may find in a Canadian workplace.  Stephen discusses issues such as human rights harassment, discrimination and just plain bullying.  Employees and supervisors will have a better idea of these definitions and some examples.  And then Stephen discusses ways to avoid workplace problems and what each person must do to address them if they arise.  It’s a good introduction about these issues and then you can fill in the details of your workplace and your policies.

#3 - Supervisors dealing with inappropriate workplace behaviours

12:52 - In this video, Stephen speaks directly to your supervisors and managers.  He spells out three techniques when employees say they are being harassed, bullied or treated inappropriately.  It will be most useful that your supervisors and managers at least view the other video about inappropriate workplace behaviours prior to viewing this video.  In this video, Stephen will take your supervisors/managers through the Initial Approach, the Informal Approach and the Formal Approach, spelling out the best approach for their situations.  This recording is not meant to educate people about investigation techniques, as the desire is to do the proper job before it gets into anything formal and/or legal.

#10 - The poisoned workplace

10:33 - This Canadian human rights decision involves inappropriate jokes, nicknames and other behaviours that can often take place in some workplaces, especially male-dominated workplaces.  Many times people will use the defence that if everyone has to take these kinds of jokes, then how can it be discrimination or bad?  If you have a male-dominated workplace where anything similar goes on, this case might be helpful to get the discussion going about what’s acceptable and what’s not.

#11 - When the bully is the manager

12:36 - This Canadian civil law suit takes us through a judge and jury award against one of the world’s largest companies, and the appeal to Ontario’s top court.  When an employee has to quit because of outrageous bullying by her boss, she often doesn’t have a lot of options.  Going to court is a lengthy and expensive process, so this case illustrates the importance of dealing with a bully boss, especially one that exhibited such obviously bad behaviour.  Most policies cover issues of bullying but the policies are only as good as they are administered…something clearly lacking in this case.  It’s a good example to lead by example to eliminate workplace bullying.

#20 - When a workplace apology works wonders

10:21 - This Canadian human rights case deals with people making glaring mistakes and the best approaches to correct them.  Everyone makes mistakes, but even when someone’s workplace human rights are violated, there still must be a way to make amends.
