Workshop description

Human rights laws require employers to accommodate workers who face barriers to employment. This module covers:

  • The legal framework for the duty to accommodate;
  • What a good accommodation process and plan look like;
  • What to do if the employer is not willing to provide reasonable accommodation.
Workshop instructionsIn response to the health concerns of our members and staff, CUPE has implemented a Scent-Free Policy at all of our workshops. Scented products such as hair spray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches. Facilitators and participants are asked to refrain from using scented products while attending our workshops and meetings. Thank you for your cooperation.
