Duty To Accommodate

This section of the seminar will provide an overview on accommodation with the latest legal developments and their impact on the workplace, including:

  • The employer's duty to accommodate - When does it arise and what does it require?
  • How do you know when you've reached the point of undue hardship?
  • What must be accommodated, and what need not be?
  • What about the accommodation process? Can the employer be liable based on process alone?
