Report on Preventing and Addressing Harassment

During the 41st Parliament, the Board adopted the House of Commons Policy on Preventing and Addressing Harassment, which applies to Members and House Officers as employers, to their employees, and to Research Office employees. The policy addresses harassment prevention, processes for filing informal and formal complaints, investigating and reporting, appeals, and communicating findings. The Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs, in its 38th report, recommended to add the Code of Conduct for Members of the House of Commons: Sexual Harassment as an appendix to the House Standing Orders, which came into effect at the start of the 42nd Parliament. This code ensures the commitment of Members of the House of Commons in creating an environment free of sexual harassment so that they can excel in their public duties and functions.

Legal Fees Policy Disclosure

If a legal issue arises while Members are carrying out their parliamentary functions, the Office of the Law Clerk and Parliamentary Counsel may, in certain situations, refer Members to outside counsel for representation. In such cases, Members may ask the Board of Internal Economy to reimburse their legal fees.

In order to ensure that the process and procedures for the reimbursement of legal fees are widely understood, and to provide additional measures to ensure a harassment-free workplace for employees and Members, the Board approved and adopted the Legal Fees Policy on March 1, 2018. The following disclosure at the end of each quarter is made pursuant to the Legal Fees Policy.
