About the Sexual Harassment in the Workplace (SHIW) Project
The Sexual Harassment in the Workplace (SHIW) Project exists to address sexual harassment in the workplace. To accomplish this, the Department of Justice Canada has provided funding to the project for five years.
Through the SHIW Project, legal clinics throughout Ontario are working to reduce sexual harassment in the workplace and improve access to justice.
The Chatham-Kent Legal Clinic is working on this project to address sexual harassment in the workplace in the municipality of Chatham-Kent.
The goals of the SHIW Project are:
We will increase public awareness and knowledge around sexual harassment in the workplace. One way we will do this is through interviews with and articles for newspapers and online media.
We will also provide public legal education, including to employees, employers, and various organizations, regarding sexual harassment in the workplace. If you would like to request a presentation, workshop, or training session for your organization, please contact us.
As well, we will provide legal information and advice to individuals on sexual harassment in the workplace, including information and advice on human rights and other employment rights.
