Community Legal Assistance Sarnia has launched a new project to help organizations and individuals experiencing sexual harassment at work.
The legal clinic is offering organizations, workplaces and schools free education sessions on how to recognize and address sexual harassment, as well as free legal advice to residents experiencing it in the workplace.
The clinic can also help prepare and represent those who qualify financially at legal proceedings.
The project is funded by the Department of Justice Canada until March of 2022.
“We want to equip employees with the skills to recognize sexual harassment in the workplace and work with survivors to advocate for their legal rights,” said project co-ordinator Victoria Miceli.
“We want survivors to know they do not have to navigate this experience alone.”
