On April 20, 2009, the provincial government introduced Bill 168 - The Occupational Health and Safety Amendment Act (Violence and Harassment in the Workplace), 2009.

Bill 168 would amend the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) to address issues of workplace harassment and violence. Employers would be required to develop workplace violence and workplace harassment policies, review the policies regularly and develop programs to implement the policies and to deal with incidents and complaints of workplace violence and harassment.

Bill 168 would also amend the work refusal section of OHSA to give workers a right to refuse to work if workplace violence is likely to endanger the worker.

When an employer is aware, or ought to be aware, that domestic violence that is likely to expose a worker to physical injury may occur in the workplace, the employer must take every reasonable precaution to protect the worker.
