Often they suffer alone without adequate treatment. Mental illness affects us all in our homes, in our communities, in our workplaces. Employers at all levels have a responsibility to ensure that their workplaces do not contribute to mental illness. Regrettably, many workplaces increase mental health problems. en Sant¨¦ mentale : parlons-en https://www.google.com//352/node/6530 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden view-mode-rss"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"><p>Nous encourageons nos membres ¨¤ participer au dialogue pancanadien sur la sant¨¦ mentale.</p> <p>L¡¯AFPC a r¨¦cemment salu¨¦ la parution du troisi¨¨me rapport du Groupe de travail mixte intitul¨¦ <a href="https://www.canada.ca/fr/secretariat-conseil-tresor/services/travail-sain/mieux-etre-milieu-travail/sante-mentale-travail/guide-systeme-gestion-sante-securite-psychologiques.html"><em>Viser la r¨¦ussite : un guide pour ¨¦tablir et maintenir un syst¨¨me de gestion de la sant¨¦ et de la s¨¦curit¨¦ psychologiques au sein de la fonction publique f¨¦d¨¦rale</em></a><a href="https://www.canada.ca/en/treasury-board-secretariat/services/healthy-workplace/workplace-wellness/mental-health-workplace/guide-psychological-health-safety-management-system.html"><em>.</em></a> Ce guide vise ¨¤ changer la fa?on dont les questions de sant¨¦ mentale sont abord¨¦es dans la fonction publique f¨¦d¨¦rale.</p> <p>Robyn Benson, pr¨¦sidente nationale de l¡¯AFPC, est la copr¨¦sidente du Comit¨¦ directeur sur la sant¨¦ mentale au travail.</p> <p>??J¡¯aimerais f¨¦liciter le Groupe de travail mixte de ses efforts constants ¨¤ collaborer pour am¨¦liorer la sant¨¦ mentale en milieu de travail??, d¨¦clare la pr¨¦sidente Benson. ??Il fournit une feuille de route ¨¦tape par ¨¦tape qui aidera les organisations ¨¤ ¨¦tablir et ¨¤ ¨¦valuer les risques en milieu de travail pouvant nuire ¨¤ la sant¨¦ et ¨¤ la s¨¦curit¨¦ psychologiques des employ¨¦s.

Le Tribunal de sant¨¦ et s¨¦curit¨¦ au travail Canada a par la suite soutenu la position de l¡¯employeur et c¡¯est ainsi que l¡¯AFPC a port¨¦ l¡¯affaire devant la Cour f¨¦d¨¦rale.</p> <h2>Contr?le judiciaire?: L¡¯AFPC gagne sa cause</h2> <p>L¡¯AFPC a d¨¦pos¨¦ une demande de contr?le judiciaire et, en novembre?2014, la Cour f¨¦d¨¦rale a statu¨¦ que le traitement dont faisait l¡¯objet M.?Akon constituait de la violence au travail.</p> <p>Le juge de la Cour f¨¦d¨¦rale, Michael Manson, a indiqu¨¦ que l¡¯intimidation psychologique peut, avec le temps, ¨ºtre l¡¯une des pires formes de pr¨¦judice qu¡¯on puisse infliger ¨¤ une personne. Il allait ainsi ¨¤ l¡¯encontre de la position du gouvernement qui soutenait que la violence au travail se limite ¨¤ l¡¯usage de la force physique.</p> <h2>Enqu¨ºte impartiale</h2> <p>Dans sa d¨¦cision, la Cour f¨¦d¨¦rale d¡¯appel a soutenu le raisonnement du juge Manson.</p> <p>Autre fait important?: la Cour a d¨¦cr¨¦t¨¦ que les employeurs n¡¯avaient pas la comp¨¦tence pour mener eux-m¨ºmes des enqu¨ºtes de cette nature. Elle a ajout¨¦ qu¡¯une telle pratique ne ferait que tourner en d¨¦rision les m¨¦canismes de r¨¦glementation et annulerait unilat¨¦ralement le droit des employ¨¦s ¨¤ une enqu¨ºte impartiale de leurs plaintes.</p> </div> </div> </div> <section class="field field-name-field-topics field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Topics:&nbsp;</h2><ul class="field-items"><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/bullying">Workplace bullying</a></li><li class="field-item odd"><a href="/352/topics/harassment">Harassment</a></li><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/law-enforcement">Law enforcement</a></li><li class="field-item odd"><a href="/352/topics/mental-health">Mental health</a></li><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/topics/violence">Violence</a></li></ul></section> Sat, 05 Dec 2015 00:07:10 +0000 bedardc 4354 at/352 Federal court rules in PSAC¡¯s favour, affirms workplace violence merits serious investigation https://www.google.com//352/federal-court-rules-psacs-favour-affirms-workplace <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden view-mode-rss"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"><p>In a <a href="http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/federal-employers-cant-unilaterally-decide-whether-harassment-constitutes-workplace-violence-court-confirms">groundbreaking decision</a>, the Federal Court of Appeal ruled on November 30 that employers cannot arbitrarily decide what constitutes <a href="/352/topics/bullying">workplace violence</a>.</p> <p>¡°The decision is ground breaking for the federal public service and all federally regulated workers,¡± said Bob Kingston, President of the Agriculture Union. ¡°It establishes that psychological harassment can amount to workplace violence and is one of the worst forms of harm that can be inflicted over time.¡±</p> <p>¡°In the context of the recent <a href="/352/government-employee-survey-shows-harassment-impact">public service employee survey</a> where one in five workers report being harassed in the public service, this decision is very timely,¡± added Robyn Benson, PSAC National President. ¡°Employees alleging workplace violence deserve to have their concerns treated fairly and respectfully.¡±?</p> <h2>PSAC member files complaint</h2> <p>The case involved a workplace violence complaint filed by Abel Akon, a CFIA poultry inspector in Saskatoon and a member of PSAC. The complaint described the harassment and humiliation he suffered from his supervisor.</p> <p>After the employer dismissed the complaint, PSAC supported Akon in asserting that CFIA management had violated a regulation of the Canada Labour Code. The case landed in court after the Occupational Health and Safety Tribunal of Canada endorsed the employer¡¯s position.</p> <h2>PSAC wins judicial review</h2> <p>PSAC filed an application for judicial review. In November 2014, the federal court ruled that the way that Akon was treated did constitute workplace violence.</p> <p>¡°Psychological bullying can be one of the worst forms of harm that can be inflicted on a person over time,¡± wrote Judge Michael Manson. This was in contrast to the government¡¯s position that workplace violence only involves physical force.</p> <h2>Impartial investigation</h2> <p>The Federal Court of Appeal agreed with Justice Manson¡¯s reasoning in its decision this week.</p> <p>It was also significant that the court agreed that employers should not be allowed to conduct their own investigations in to workplace violence, saying this ¡°would make a mockery of the regulatory scheme and effectively nullify the employees¡¯ right to an impartial investigation of their complaints.¡±</p> </div> </div> </div> <section class="field field-name-field-topics field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Topics:&nbsp;</h2><ul class="field-items"><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/bullying">Workplace bullying</a></li><li class="field-item odd"><a href="/352/topics/harassment">Harassment</a></li><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/law-enforcement">Law enforcement</a></li><li class="field-item odd"><a href="/352/topics/mental-health">Mental health</a></li><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/topics/violence">Violence</a></li></ul></section> Fri, 04 Dec 2015 21:47:35 +0000 bedardc 4351 at/352
