The Help and Information Center on Sexual Harassment in the Workplace (GAIHST) is a community center established in 1980 that helps individuals who have been subjected to sexual and/or psychological harassment at work.
Help and information
Clients can contact counsellors to speak freely and in confidence about the conditions that they are experiencing in their workplace. The Help and Information Department ensures that you always have an attentive listener. This help can take on the form of general information about the appropriate steps to take, technical assistance, active listening, etc.
Clients whose file is transfered from the Help and Information Department to the Complaints Department are offered support to deal with their workplace harassment situation. The department can offer different type of assistance at different stages of a case.
Awareness-raising and prevention
We are committed to developing and maintaining relationships with companies in the private, public and parapublic sectors, as well as with community centres. Therefore, one of our mandates is to promote education and prevention among employees and managers in a company.
Awareness-raising sessions: Intended primarily for employees, awareness-raising sessions aim to demystify the notions of sexual and psychological harassment at work. They also aim to train participants so that they can recognize harassment in the workplace and respond appropriately.
Training sessions: The purpose of these sessions is to inform managers and company leaders and show them how to recognize harassment in the workplace and how to prevent and manage it, if it should happen within their company.
Special project - It’s not part of the job!
Intended for all community centers and workplaces, these awareness-raising sessions and workshops explain the realities and issues experienced by many minority groups to raise awareness about the problem of harassment, such as for immigrants and newcomers and indigenous people, in a precarious work situation and the LGBTQ2S + communities.
Component 1: Harassment awareness-raising for these minority groups, in order to make them aware of the harassment they may experience, their rights and the recourse available to them, etc;
Component 2: Making your work environment aware of cultural, gender and identity diversity to demystify each other’s differences which can sometimes generate harassment.
* The training sessions are tailored to the needs of the organizations that request them.
