- Government of Alberta
Alberta currently does not have full legislation documenting workplace bullying as a major health and workplace concern. There are currently limited parameters that businesses/organizations must meet under the current Occupational Health & Safety Act.
We feel Section 27 needs to repealed and an amendment to the OH&S made protecting employees who experience severe trauma in the workplace, holding businesses/organizations accountable for mental health injury as a result of workplace bullying and mandatory health and safety investigations when an employee is forced to leave work based on established criteria.
We, the undersigned, call on the Government of Alberta to repeal Section 27 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and enact new legislation protecting employees in Alberta who are exposed to and experience workplace bullying and hold organizations accountable for this behaviour.
The New Workplace Bullying Legislation in Alberta petition to Government of Alberta was written by Samantha Jones and is in the category Health at GoPetition.
