Disclosures of sexual harassment will be treated in confidence in order to protect an employee’s privacy. However, in some instances, a matter may need to be escalated or referred without agreement from the employee, particularly in circumstances that may:

  • constitute a criminal offence,
  • constitute an occupational health and safety risk, or
  • require disciplinary action

If a matter needs to be escalated or referred, the person handling the matter will notify the person who made the disclosure of who has been informed of the disclosure.
