UNION EDUCATION

DUTY TO ACCOMMODATE AND THE WCB

Sarah O'Leary and Janet Patterson

The duty to accommodate applies to both employers and unions; both have to work towards providing an accommodation for an injured worker to allow him or her to continue to be a productive member of the workplace. What many WCB advocates don't realize is that, unlike Ontario, the duty to accommodate in BC is not found under the Workers' Compensation Act but under the Human Rights Code.

In this workshop we will discuss what obligations unions and employers have to injured workers, how to get the WCB involved, and what your obligations are when there is a conflict between collective agreement rights and the duty to accommodate.
