As an HR practitioner, you know that the duty to accommodate disability is serious business, and meeting that duty can be fraught with tough questions: What constitutes undue hardship? What kinds of questions should I ask (and not ask) to support a return to work? What about performance management?
For this session we are pleased to have Hicks Morley Partner Glenn Christie provide an overview of relevant case law and legislation, and Certified Disability Management Professional (CDMP) Tara Beaton provide practical tips for managing disabilities in the workplace. Issues covered will include the duty to inquire, employer and employee obligations relating to the duty to accommodate, undue hardship, how to get what you need to establish accommodation needs, bona fide occupational requirements, management of medical information, how to drive a successful return to work and maximize productivity, and guidance for managing performance and imposing lawful discipline when employees have disabilities… all while keeping your employer out of legal hot water.
1. Become aware of relevant case law and legislation related to managing disability management programs.
2. Understand the duty to accommodate, undue hardship, and bona fide occupational requirements in regard to supporting successful return to work activities.
2. Receive guidance on managing performance and imposing lawful discipline when employees have disabilities.
