Human Rights in the Workplace for ECEs
This workshop was designed by the Justice Education Society of B.C. to provide those working in childcare with an understanding of the foundations of human rights legislation and protected grounds. Participants will have an overview of the BC Human Rights Tribunal reporting procedures, and available remedies, as well as the principles, values and the role of human rights in a workplace; how it’s a tool for advocacy and accountability, how individual accommodation is identified and provided, and how to take action for one’s own rights; while identifying areas of discrimination, bullying, and harassment.
