About this Event

Human Rights and the Duty to Accommodate:

Tips and Strategies to Build an Inclusive Workplace

Sometimes people need to be treated differently in order to be treated fairly. Employers and service providers have an obligation to uphold this fairness and to eliminate negative treatment of people, based on the prohibited grounds of discrimination under The Saskatchewan Human Rights Code, 2018. Part of this obligation includes the duty to accommodate. But what are these grounds? And what does accommodation entail? Join Meghan Seidle to learn about your organization’s duty to accommodate in such areas as: disability, drug and alcohol testing, service and support animals, pregnancy, family status, and religion. This workshop will provide materials that will significantly enhance your understanding of accommodation, and will also provide principles, tips, and strategies for successful accommodation.

Meghan Seidle is a lawyer with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission. She has been with the Commission since 2014. During that time, she has had exposure to a variety of human rights files in all areas covered by the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code. She has an in-depth knowledge of procedural and administrative law matters involving the Code. Meghan regularly advises on the law at all stages of the Commission’s process, and represents the Commission before the Court of Queen’s Bench.
