Professional development for a more resilient arts sector
Business & Arts NL thanks Cox & Palmer for their extraordinary generosity in sponsoring the 2020 Business Workshops for Artists series. Their support helped us pivot to online platforms and increase the number of workshops offered over the past year ensuring that our programming reaches even more artists and organizations across the province.
These workshops cover a variety of topics to help artists and arts organizations gain skills and knowledge to run their businesses.

Drafting a Respectful Workplace Policy
Wednesday, December 2, 2020
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Are you an arts organization or creative entrepreneur who has employees? Do you have an up-to-date Respectful Workplace Policy? In Newfoundland and Labrador, new provincial workplace regulations came into effect on January 1, 2020, that mandate all employers to develop, implement and maintain a written harassment prevention plan to address “workplace harassment”. On December 2, Labour and Employment Lawyer Brittany Keating of McInnes Cooper Law Firm will lead a workshop that outlines the new legislative requirements and provide general tips and guidelines on what a harassment prevention plan should include.
