When does an ‘angry’ email constitute workplace bullying? Stuart comments for HRD Canada.

Employers have a “duty to enquire” when it comes to bullying at work – meaning that if you suspect harassment is happening in your workforce you legally have to act on those suspicions.

And feigning ignorance isn’t an excuse.

“Before any allegations arise, employers must update their policies to make sure that they refer to not only harassment but harassment in all its forms, including digital,” says Stuart Rudner, founder of Rudner Law LLP.
