Ontario Public Service Review of the Workplace Discrimination and Harassment Prevention (WDHP) Program and Related Components of the Respectful Workplace Policy (RWP)


Project Summary:

This project involved a whole-of-government program evaluation on behalf of the Cabinet Office and the Government of Ontario of fhe Workplace Discrimination and Harassment Prevention (WDHP) Program and related components of the Respectful Workplace Policy (RWP).

Project Description:

The purpose of the whole-of-government review of the Workplace Discrimination and Harassment Prevention (WDHP) Program and related components of the Respectful Workplace Policy (RWP) through an intersectional anti-racism perspective (with particular attention to anti-Indigenous and anti-Black racisms) were twofold:

1. Assess the extent to which the current policy and complaint process are addressing and meeting the concerns of Indigenous, Black and racialized employees and identify any patterns or trends in the processing of race-based complaints.

2. Make recommendations on what improvements are needed to the WDHP Program and related components of the RWP, including how direct, indirect and systemic race-based discrimination issues can be identified, monitored and resolved.
