Course Description

In this course, the Nunavut Law Society is providing an opportunity to explore Inuit and Western Approaches to Creating a healthy workplace, as it relates to the issues of workplace harassment and violence and the law.

While other activities will involve hearing from legal counsel on the details of workplace harassment and violence legislation, as it applies to territorial or federal workplaces, how and why conflict arises at all at work, is an issue.

How we address conflict informally, or formally with the assistance of the law and legal counsel or the Nunavut Law Society, is also important to understand.
