Human Rights and the Duty to Accommodate

April 13 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

As an employer, what is your duty to accommodate?

When it comes to employees with chronic health disabilities or family obligations, employers need to be mindful of their duty to accommodate.

This presentation will cover the proactive steps employers need to take to ensure they are properly accommodating employees’ needs to avoid future litigation, while ensuring they are protecting their organizations’ interests. In particular, we will review:

  • The duty to accommodate in the workplace
  • Accommodating employees on return from extended leaves of absence
  • When and how to seek medical information from employees
  • Best practices and practical tips
