Harris Celebrates Pink Shirt Day

Harris & Company celebrates Pink Shirt Day on February 28th. Not only do we promote a workplace dedicated to combatting bullying and harassment, and elevating respect and inclusion, but we take pride in helping our clients meet their obligations to do the same.

Pink Shirt Day began in Nova Scotia in 2007, after several high school students wore pink shirts to school in order to support another student who had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt. Now over 100 countries participate in Pink Shirt Day activities each year, by wearing pink shirts to raise awareness and funds to support anti-bullying campaigns.

Despite the attention to the issue of bullying and harassment that is brought by Pink Shirt Day, workplace bullying and harassment remains a prevalent issue for employers in British Columbia. It is an important reminder to all employers of their obligation to provide a safe, harassment-free workplace for their employees, and to take steps to prevent and address workplace bullying and harassment.

Harris & Company can help you to create policies to address workplace bullying and harassment, and we can also provide training for your workplace to ensure that all employees are aware of their obligations when it comes to promoting a healthy and safe work environment.
