This paper discusses sexual harassment in the Canadian workplace and possible solutions to the problem. More specifically, the paper discusses an article written by Michael Kaufman in the 27 March 2006 edition of the "Toronto Star," entitled "Effective Ways to Protect Against Sexual Harassment" and examines how Kaufman sets forth a series of practical suggestions in regards to how best to address the problem of sexual harassment in the workplace. The paper also discusses the legal case, "Curling v. Torimiro" and how it relates to this issue.
From the Paper:"The summary notes that in the final decision of the Board, released 22 December 1999, defendant Alexander Torimiro was found to be responsible for conduct qualifying as sexual harassment against the complainant, Ms. Curling. Such conduct was found to be discriminatory on the basis of the complainant's gender, and it was also found that Mr. Torimiro engaged in retaliatory response against the complainant when the initial suggestions were rebuffed. The summary also notes that the Board of Inquiry found that Mr. Torimiro, in his commencement of legal action against the complainant, had in addition violated Ms. Curling's statutory right to claim Code protection without fear of threat of retaliation."
