New Éducaloi workshop on harassment at work

Do you want to discuss labor rights with your students, but you don’t feel sufficiently rested? Invite a lawyer to your class for free to lead Éducaloi’s new workshop: work, but not at all costs!.

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

Go to legaleducation.ca to register your class. This project is being carried out thanks to the financial support of CNESST through its program aimed at combating psychological or sexual harassment at work.
