Bullying is defined as repeated and unreasonable behavior directed towards a person or group of persons that creates a risk to health and safety. It includes behavior that could be expected to intimidate, offend, degrade, humiliate, undermine or threaten.

Discrimination is defined as the support or practice discrimination based on race, religion, age, national origin, language, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or mental or physical handicap, whether covered by applicable legislation or not, except where affirmative action may be required to redress individual or social handicaps of people from disadvantaged groups.

Sexual Harassment is defined as any unwelcome sexual advance, unwelcome request for sexual favours, or other unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature which makes a person feel offended, humiliated or intimidated, and where that reaction is reasonable in the circumstances. Examples of sexual harassment include, but are not limited to,

  • staring or leering

  • accessing sexually explicit internet sites
  • requests for sex or repeated unwanted requests to go out on dates
  • behavior that may also be considered to be an offence under criminal law, such as physical assault, indecent exposure, sexual assault, stalking or obscene communications
  • Behavior that is based on mutual attraction, friendship and respect is not sexual harassment.
