How the government addresses conflict and disrespectful behaviour

The government uses a collaborative approach to support our employees who are dealing with conflict and disrespectful behaviour in their workplace.

Our approach to resolving workplace conflict

We use a collaborative approach to resolve workplace conflict which allows all parties to discuss what is important to them, their needs, expectations and priorities in a safe, confidential environment.

This collaborative approach includes a variety of conflict management services that we offer our employees.

  • Employee orientation, training and education to promote awareness and increase conflict management skills.
  • Conflict coaching.
  • Mediation and facilitated conversations.
  • Work group conflict assessment.
  • Group facilitation and circle processes.

Who can access these services?

Support is available to all Government of Yukon employees who are experiencing a workplace conflict or disrespectful behaviour or who wish to prevent or manage work related conflicts. It is offered to individuals and groups.

The services are offered in a confidential manner by professionally trained and qualified staff who are impartial to the situation.

For more information see the respectful workplace policy.
