A group of managers at a detention centre filed a complaint against their employer for failing to provide a workplace free from harassment by not addressing a blog by correctional officers that contained offensive and slanderous material directed at them. The employer asked the Grievance Board to dismiss the complaint but it refused. The managers raise a viable argument that the blog’s content created a poisoned workplace that the employer failed to address as was its duty, explained the Board [Lee v. Ontario (Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services), [2011] O.P.S.G.B.A. No. 11, July 21, 2011].
