And in the interest of keeping your members informed and equipped to address workplace issues, the Atlantic Chamber of Commerce is sharing the following notifications.
Sexual Harassment in the Work Place - Education Campaign
On International Women’s Day, March 8, the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission will launch the Safe Spaces educational campaign that will provide NS businesses with new resources including a template for organizations to develop a sexual harassment policy.
In support of the Human Rights Commissions effort to curb instances of sexual harassment and educate employers and workers regarding their rights and responsibilities, we urge business owners to review the attached material and contact the Commission directly for more information at www.safespacesns.ca.
Immigrant Settlement Association Available to Inform Members
The staff at ISANS has communicated a desire and willingness to provide chambers of commerce with information on programs and opportunities available to businesses who have or may be considering employing an immigrant or refugee.
ISANS has indicated they would be available at no cost to speak to local members about the challenges and available supports to facilitate hiring and retention of newcomers. This type of event could provide an opportunity to open a dialogue between business and ISANS about the realities welcoming newcomers to local economies and how issues can be addressed.
Should you be interested in scheduling a lunch and learn as early as late March or early April, please contact Clifford MacDonald, Coordinator of Employer Partnership and Outreach Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 902-406-8694.
