The Fundamentals of Disability Management

Managing and accommodating employees with disabilities is one of the more complex issues faced by employers today. The complexity of this issue only increases when seeking to manage and accommodate those employees who are afflicted with chronic or episodic disabilities. In this three hour interactive workshop, we will examine the legal rights and obligations of employers, employees, and unions with respect to disability management and accommodation and provide you with practical tips and advice that you can implement in your business when faced with such issues.
