Former Civil Servants Invited to Provide Input in Harassment Policy

Former Civil Servants Invited to Provide

WINNIPEG — Former civil servants are being asked to share their experiences for a review of government harassment policies after female staff came forward with allegations that a former NDP cabinet minister tickled and groped them.

In February, Progressive Conservative Premier Brian Pallister announced a "no wrong door" policy, which he says will give employees more options to report complaints.

Multiple women came forward earlier that month with allegations that Stan Struthers, a former NDP cabinet minister, had tickled them or made sexual remarks.

Former NDP premier Greg Selinger said he never saw the behaviour but he apologized and later resigned his legislature seat.

The government brought in an external expert to review policies around such complaints, and the law firm has started consultations with current employees.

Now, former employees have been invited to participate.
