This seminar will look at the general duty to accommodate under the governing legislation, the specific re-employment obligation under the workplace safety legislation and the challenges in crafting appropriate return to work plans in coordination with disability insurance carriers. This overview will examine case law and assist employers with ensuring that they are not running afoul of the various legislation.
