Live Online Training Session – Workplace Accommodations and Sick Leaves

March 11, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Trainers – Dan Condon & Christine Ashton

Based on the popularity of our previous workplace training webinars, we will now be providing a live online training session on how to properly handle employee accommodation requests and sick leaves.

When an employee advises that they require accommodation in the workplace or to be placed on sick leave, employers are entering a potential minefield. It is important that employers take the proper steps to ensure that they understand the request, that the request is properly made, and that the request is properly considered. If an employer fails to take these steps, they can find themselves facing a human rights complaint, a Ministry of Labour complaint, and/or a civil claim.

To assist supervisors, managers, and HR staff in regards to employee accommodation and sick leaves, Wilson Vukelich LLP is providing a training session.

At the training session you will learn:

  • how to properly handle accommodations and sick leave requests;
  • how to properly investigate whether accommodation or a leave is required and continues to be required; and
  • how to avoid a human rights complaint, a Ministry of Labour complaint, and a civil action
