Respect in the Workplace: What Parents/Caregivers Need to Know
Effective June 15, 2010 new Provincial Legislation came into effect with respect to Violence and Harassment in the Workplace. As a result, LDSB has implemented two new procedures: Respect in the Workplace and Violence in the Workplace. The goal of these procedures is to foster safe learning and working environments so that staff and students can work and learn without fear of harassment, discrimination and violence. Responsibilities of the Board extend to developing and implementing programs aimed at reporting, investigating and addressing harassment and violence concerns.
These procedures apply not only to staff and students, but also to parents/legal guardians, members of the broader school community as well as the general public.
