Restorative Justice in the Workplace

Watch this webinar to increase your knowledge of the skills and competencies associated with restorative justice in the workplace.

Restorative justice is a process for achieving justice that helps to restore the dignity of all people involved in a wrong-doing and puts into place a framework for all people involved to have the opportunity to share in their mutual human development. Although restorative justice is most often associated with criminal justice as a framework for rethinking crime and punishment, the principles of restorative justice and restorative practices have far-reaching applications, including the workplace. At its core, restorative justice is concerned with the care and respect of humanity. This means that when a wrong or harm has taken place, the respect for all individuals guides the process for making right the wrong.
