Mental Health in the Workplace (en anglais)
The duty and benefits of accommodating employees with disabilities
CivicAction and the Mental Health Commission of Canada bring you a MindsMatter webinar on: the duty and benefits of accommodating employees with disabilities.
Everyone has the right to equal treatment in employment and cannot be discriminated against on the basis of actual or perceived disability. Accommodation is a way of helping employees work more effectively by overcoming limitations caused by disabilities, including mental illnesses.
Changes in labour law, occupational health and safety, employment standards, workers compensation, and human rights decisions are all pointing in the need for employers to provide a psychologically safe workplace.
Join the guest speakers unpack these developments and share what employers need to know and do to support their employees in realizing their potential and contributing to their workplace and broader community.
