PIPSC welcomes the landmark class action win for current and former employees who experienced harassment, assault, and discrimination while working at the Department of National Defence, Canadian Armed Forces, Non-Public Funds or Canadian Forces.
We hope this class action will bring closure and acknowledge the pain and suffering of all those who experienced a toxic work environment. This is a strong reminder that we must continue advocating for workplaces free from harassment and violence. This case is one step forward in recognizing that all workers should be treated with respect at work.
