MPP McGarry's Motion on Workplace Sexual Harassment Gets Full Approval

Queen’s Park – This afternoon, Cambridge MPP Kathryn McGarry saw her Private Members Motion on workplace sexual harassment pass with support from all three parties.

McGarry’s motion called for the definition of employment within the Ontario Human Rights Code of work place harassment, to be updated to include activities or events that happen outside of normal business hours or off business premises, but are linked to the workplace and employment

“Sexual harassment in the workplace is never acceptable. Increasingly, more and more people are working beyond the traditional 9 to 5 work day, and employment increasingly is taking work beyond the four walls of an office. This motion acknowledges that workplace harassment and sexual harassment policies should also apply in settings outside of business hours.”
