Manitoba, Canada

The following excerpt is from Giesbrecht v. McNeilly et al., 2008 MBCA 22 (CanLII):

53 See also Oliver v. Severance, 2007 PESCAD 2, 277 D.L.R. (4th) 393, leave to appeal refused, [2007] S.C.C.A. No. 74, where, for the court, McQuaid J.A. said (at para. 61): .... Conduct which is harassing and abusive toward an employee to the point where she allegedly has an emotional breakdown, would be a violation of the employer’s obligation to provide a safe workplace. The obligation to provide such a workplace surely contemplates the obligation to provide for the psychological health and safety of the employees as well as their physical health and safety. ....
