As the workforce in Ontario has become increasingly diverse, the range and complexity of accommodation issues facing Ontario employers have also grown substantially.  Keeping up with the continually-evolving legal landscape with respect to accommodation issues can be a challenge for many busy Corporate Counsel and Human Resources practitioners.  The purpose of this session is to provide an update on recent legal developments of note in this area, which will assist you to ensure your organization is taking the appropriate steps to comply with its obligations under the Human Rights Code.

Following a brief review of some of the key principles governing the concept of accommodation, we will provide a series of fast-paced updates on recent developments in the following areas:

  • Disability accommodation
  • Family status accommodation
  • Religious accommodation
  • Managing the accommodation process
