Human Resources committee  In such a case, investigators whose services we use have their methods, and they are familiar with evidentiary requirements. For them, comments on social networks are just that—comments. Those specialists are skilled enough to determine what evidence is relevant in a harassment i

Human Resources committee  The issue of cyberbullying is another matter. In some investigations, electronic elements were submitted as evidence, such as text messages, emails or something posted on a Facebook wall. If that evidence is relevant to the investigation, it can be submitted. If it is not relevan

Human Resources committee  Yes, absolutely.

Pierre Parent

Human Resources committee  The number of cases has not been high enough to need recommendations. When a report indicates that the claim of harassment is unfounded, there are no recommendations. In members' cases, recommendations are very difficult to make. That's not how it is in our environment, where dis

Human Resources committee  We would have to see what kind of a recommendation is involved. I will not venture into issues of parliamentary privilege, since some of my colleagues are more qualified than me in that area. In fact, we have to establish what kind of a recommendation an independent investigator

Human Resources committee  My answer will be very short. Right now, we have no suggestions. Once Bill C-65 receives royal assent, we will adapt to it. Our internal processes are solid enough to help us going forward. So I don't have any specific concerns.

Pierre Parent

Human Resources committee  It's a difficult question to answer. We're monitoring Bill C-65. Unfortunately, the regulations are not drafted, so it's difficult to see the final effect of Bill C-65. Fear of retribution depends on the structure, and that is why I go back to the structure of members' offices

Pierre Parent

Human Resources committee  This is a fairly new policy from the last two years. The next time we review the policy we'll look at best practices, and if these definitions, these three parts of harassment...or if there's a fourth one that we don't know about, we'll be able to suggest that to the Board of Int

Human Resources committee  As I said earlier, we have resources, especially in the House of Commons. We have the respectful workplace policy, Finding Solutions Together. I've got two nurses on staff in the employee assistance program, and if for whatever reason a case goes beyond our resources, we'll look

February 26th, 2018Committee meeting

Pierre Parent

Human Resources committee  Absolutely. The policy also applies to them, as if they were employees. It's a matter of reaching out to them to let them know that the resources exist and that they can use them. There are no issues in that regard, since volunteers and interns are specifically covered by the pol

Pierre Parent

Human Resources committee  Yes, absolutely.

February 26th, 2018Committee meeting

Pierre Parent

Human Resources committee  I won't comment specifically on the way the legislation will apply, but we have our own committees, be it for occupational health and safety or for labour and management issues. So it is not harmful to have those committees. I think that, I would keep those committees going even

Pierre Parent

Human Resources committee  I hope it will. I have three hours. I tried to get more, honestly, but in three hours I can do so much. I was first hired in 1993, so although my employment has been during two different periods, I have fairly extensive knowledge of what you do as members of Parliament, and the

February 26th, 2018Committee meeting

Pierre Parent

Human Resources committee  We have a definition. As I mentioned, we will table the policies that we have. As I said, the code of conduct, which only deals with sexual harassment between members of Parliament, is very short. It's a one-liner, but the one that applies to members of Parliament as employers
