Have I crossed the line? Am I bullying?

Respect and No Bully Line


The Respect and No Bully Line is a confidential phone service for Providence Health Care employees that offers:

  • Opportunity to debrief your experience
  • Information and coaching on how to resolve disrespectful conduct
  • Support with filing formal complaint with Human Resources
  • Referral to free, confidential counselling and/or specialized coaching

The line is answered by a separate branch of the Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) that specializes in mental health and supporting individuals dealing with bullying and harassment in the workplace. The program is external to Providence Health Care.

The line is staffed Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. If you call outside of working hours, you can leave a message and someone will return your call.
