New Éducaloi workshop on workplace harassment

Do you want to discuss workplace rights with your students, but do not feel equipped enough? Invite a lawyer to your class for free to lead Éducaloi's new workshop: Work, but not at all costs!. 

Your students will test their knowledge of employee rights, such as uniforms or statutory holidays. They will also discuss real situations of workplace harassment. This workshop will help them ask themselves the right questions if they are experiencing an unpleasant situation at work, to recognize harassment and to go to the right resources to obtain information or file a complaint.

Visit legaleducation.ca to register your class. This project is carried out thanks to the financial support of the CNESST via its program aimed at the fight against psychological or sexual harassment in the workplace.
