Workplace Violence and Harassment

Workplace Violence & Harassment

Mount Royal University is committed to providing, promoting and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment and supporting the physical, psychological and social wellbeing of all Employees.

Harassment and violence are defined as workplace hazards in the current Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Act. The act outlines the responsibilities of employers to help prevent workplace harassment and violence and address incidents when they occur. 

At MRU, employee related harassment and bullying complaints are addressed by the Human Resources Department.

What do I do if I think I'm being bullied or harassed at work?

If you believe you have been the victim of harassment or bullying at work, please reach out to your HR Business Partner. They can discuss informal approaches to your concerns and provide you with further information in the event of a formal complaint. The list of HR Business Partners can be found in the Human Resources Liaison Guide on the Employee Resources & Timesheets page of MyMRU.

Employees eligible for benefits also have access to coaching, counselling and various support services through the Employee & Family Assistance Program. This benefit is offered through an independent third party, Homewood Health.
