British Columbia Bill 14: Prevent Bullying & Harassment
in the Workplace Training

Founded in 1997, HR Proactive Inc. is a Human Rights Consultancy Business specializing in the design and delivery of Respectful Workplace programs, policies and training.

British Columbia Bill 14:

In 2012, British Columbia became the fourth province behind Quebec, Ontario and Saskatchewan to introduce legislation to deal with bullying and harassment in the workplace. Bill 14 amends Section 5.1 of the Workers Compensation Act to include:

  • Revised wording from “mental stress” to “mental disorder”
  • A new reference to bullying and harassment as a significant work-related stressor
  • Diagnosed mental disorders caused by significant work-related stressors, including bullying and harassment
  • A “predominant cause” test for mental disorders caused by significant work-related stressors

As a result, employees may be entitled to compensation for a mental disorder that is a reaction to a traumatic event in the workplace or is caused by a significant work-related stressor which includes bullying or harassment.

So, what does this mean for the workplace?

Employers are advised to take reasonable steps to prevent or minimize harassment and bullying and ensure employees do not engage in “any improper activity or behaviour that might constitute a hazard.”

Employers are required to:


  • Perform a risk assessment
  • Develop written policies and procedures to address bullying and harassment
  • Implement procedures for reporting, documenting, and investigating bullying and harassment complaints or incidents
  • Provide training to ensure bullying and harassment are adequately addressed

Employers need to adjust their focus to work toward what is termed the psychologically safe workplace, “one that does not permit harm to employee mental health,… one in which every practical effort is made to avoid reasonably foreseeable injury to the mental health of employees.”
