Overview

This Workshop is designed to take the mystery out of managing the duty to accommodate for senior academic managers, deans and HR staff members who deal with increasingly complex demands to accommodate faculty members at all stages of their academic careers.

Catherine Peters of Hicks Morley will add her expertise as a seasoned practitioner to the FBS training team of Neil Gold and Barbara Richards. This interactive workshop will address the definition and scope of the duty to accommodate, the role of the university administration, faculty member, and faculty association, and provide opportunities to discuss several scenarios aimed at stressing the importance of finding creative solutions in an environment of mutual respect.
