Bill C-65 Workplace Investigations

New regulations under Bill C-65 require employers to have a procedure in place to respond to verbal and written complaints of harassment and violence in the workplace. Procedures that must be in place include:

  • Time frame to resolve a complaint
  • Confidentiality and privacy of all parties involved: Complainant, Respondent, Witnesses
  • Protection for employees harassed by a third-party (eg. client, contractor)
  • Qualifications required of investigator assigned to investigate complaint
  • Obligations of employer to implement any recommendations and/or corrective measures in response to an investigation report
  • Supports available to victims of harassment and/or violence
  • Documented records of every occurrence of harassment and/or violence
HR Proactive investigators are trained specialists with years of experience in the fields of Human Rights, Occupational Health & Safety and/or Police Services. Interviews with all Parties will be conducted by our investigators in-person or virtually through video conferencing such as Zoom. As required under Bill C-65, our final investigation report includes the following:
  • background information
  • investigative scope and methodology
  • summary of the complaint and respondent’s reply
  • detailed facts and evidence
  • final analysis and conclusion

Recommendations are provided when requested.
