But as of January 1, 2020, those regulations will change, providing new protections to workers – and imposing new obligations on their employers. The countdown is on for employers to understand the new regulatory requirements and create or review and revise their violence and harassment prevention plan and processes before they take effect, or face the significant liability risks for non-compliance. In her article, 5 Key Changes to Newfoundland & Labrador’s OHS Workplace Violence & Harassment Prevention obligations effective January 1, 2020, as published by First Reference, McInnes Cooper Labour & Employment Lawyer Brittany Keating shares five key changes to the N.L. regulations that will take effect on January 1, 2020 and tips to help employers comply.
