The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted Canadians’ mental and physical health. Over the past year, Canadians have struggled to adjust to the new “normal” which includes working from home or working on-site with new health and safety measures in place.

After provincial lockdowns and restrictions are eased and more Canadians return to the office, employers will have to navigate several complexities that may implicate their duty to accommodate an employee. These issues include the duty to accommodate an employee’s mental health condition and underlying health conditions to the point of undue hardship.

During this webinar, employment lawyers from leading Canadian employment & labour law firms will discuss the employer’s duty to accommodate an employee’s disability and how accommodation issues may arise when employees return to the office. Specific attention will be placed on the dramatic shift in working conditions across industries and geographic locations and the novel questions it raises.

In this presentation, you will learn:
  • The state of the law surrounding an employer’s duty to accommodate an employee
  • Duty to accommodate issues that may arise for employees returning back to the office
  • Influential factors that HR professionals should know when dealing with the duty to accommodate
  • How AI-powered platform can assist HR professionals in navigating complex accommodation requests
Who should attend: HR professionals / in-house counsel
Format: Live Online - Zoom Webinar
Time: 9:30 - 10:30 am - Pacific Time (PT) - Vancouver
