Miller Thomson Health Industry Group Coffee Talk: Health Industry Seminar Series – BACK TO BASICS: Employer Obligations for Health Care Providers Facing Harassment and Violence

October 5, 2022 | Justin Diggle | Toronto

Healthcare providers have and continue to face harassment and sometimes violence from patients and clients when delivering care. There is a growing recognition and appreciation of the importance of psychological health and safety in the workplace.

This session will explore:

  • Employer’s obligations when it comes to harassment and violence of staff by those they are entrusted to care for: patients, residents and clients.
  • What are an employer’s health and safety requirements?
  • What entitlements exist under workplace safety and insurance legislation?
  • And how have adjudicators grappled with these issues?

This presentation will provide some answers and practical advice to these questions.

We hope you can join us.
