Accommodation and Return to Work: Developing a Collaborative, Systemic Approach [WEBCAST ONLY] 

Feb. 25, 2021
ON

OBA Workers' Compensation PROGRAM | 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM (ET)

Join us as we examine the legal framework around accommodation and return to work as well as practical considerations in how to approach these situations. There is broad agreement between employers, employees and labour that the best outcome for an injured or disabled worker is safe and sustainable accommodation to support the worker to remain at work or to return to work following absence. Further, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act contains a comprehensive regime to support this on a case by case basis.  Putting this into practice, however, can be a significant challenge and lead to disputes and litigation.

Our expert faculty will review the legal framework for accommodation and return to work, after which an employer and union will provide a detailed look into their decade-long collaboration to develop a comprehensive proactive return to work and accommodation strategy.
