Accommodation Update: New and Important Decisions in Human Rights Law

About this Event

Workplace accommodation can be a challenge for even the most seasoned HR professional. Join us as we discuss recent human rights decisions and how they might impact your workplace. Topics include:

1. Disability Accommodation

  • Must an employer accommodate an employee’s commute-related restrictions?
  • Is an employee entitled to the employee’s preferred accommodation?
  • What, if any, accommodation is required when an employee claims return to work during COVID-19 causes anxiety and discomfort?

2. Family Status Discrimination

  • Must an employer accommodate an employee’s child care preferences?
  • Does COVID-19 impact the decision-making?
  • Does an employer “set a precedent” by agreeing to a flexible start time?

3. Drugs and Alcohol in the Workplace

  • Can an employee be dismissed for failing to participate in a drug or alcohol test?
  • Recent case law on accommodation of a substance use disorder.

Via Zoom (you will receive a Zoom link the day before the webinar)
