Workplace Violence


The ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Education support the idea that it is a fundamental right of Ontarians to work and learn in a safe environment.1  Teachers have the right to work in a safe environment.

Workplace violence appears to be on the rise and as teachers, we are sometimes confronted by violence from students, parents/guardians, or other staff members.  By law, all school boards must have violence policy and a protocol in place to deal with workplace violence.

In this section, you will find a variety of resources relating to violence in the workplace, including a chart to help navigate which forms teachers should fill out, depending on the situation and the perpetrator of the violent act.
