Issues

While the duty to accommodate is well established, the exact nature of that duty is constantly changing. For example, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced new complexity to the accommodation process as workers seek exemptions from vaccination requirements or request permission to work remotely. To fulfill their responsibilities under human rights legislation, workplace parties must stay apprised of relevant developments in law and practice. In this session, legal experts will explore recent cases on accommodation and undue hardship. Final selection of cases will take place shortly before the webinar airs to ensure up-to-date coverage of current trends.
