Not even the fine print.
I wanted to cover my butt so I read ALL the pages. Just a friendly reminder, read and ask questions. Your signature speaks volumes so best to grasp an understanding before you ink that paper.
This is what was promised among others:
“Maintain a safe and healthy workplace.”
“Provide training and learning opportunities for all personnel to foster growth.”
“Work in an ethical and professional manner.”
“Everyone that you deal with both internally and externally should be treated with respect at all times.”
This is what's written to support the law:
“Fairness in the workplace is the right of all Ontarians.”
Workplace violence means:
The exercise of physical force by a person against a worker, in a workplace, that causes or could cause physical injury to the worker
An attempt to exercise physical force against a worker, in a workplace, that could cause physical injury to the worker
A statement or behaviour that it is reasonable for a worker to interpret as a threat to exercise physical force against the worker, in a workplace, that could cause physical injury to the worker.
Workplace harassment means:
Engaging in a course of vexatious comment or conduct against a worker in a workplace that is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome.
Workplace harassment may include bullying, intimidating or offensive jokes or innuendos, displaying or circulating offensive pictures or materials, or offensive or intimidating phone calls.”
It seems to me that "confidentiality" and "professionalism" may seem optional. Because for some reason, word goes around. And now, I'm judged. Looked at differently.
"Individuals who wish to remain anonymous may do so."
...................Even this sounds scary. Because I'm sure I'll still be bullied by the minions. But yes, I tried to dial a few times and thought about it. Just hung up out of fear.
