Among HR’s most challenging tasks is effectively managing and accommodating employees’ disabilities while complying with the law. Part of the challenge is how multiple legal regimes, from the Human Rights Code to the WSIB to the common law, weave together in a complex tapestry that requires careful planning, flexibility, and patience to untangle. In this session with speaker Brian Gottheil, we will explore the laws that affect disability management and accommodation, along with practical advice and strategies to address key challenges that arise in managing disability-related absences, accommodation, and return to work.
