Product details

"A healthy society maximizes the opportunities for each individual to achieve self-worth while minimizing the conflict that inevitably arises when people are at cross-purposes."


The landscape of accommodation in the Canadian workplace is ever-changing. Due to the sensitive but crucial nature of this content, employers, HR managers, and legal practitioners, need to adapt effective best practices on how to best meet their duty to accommodate.


Many questions arise from "grey areas" not addressed explicitly in the law, or are so current, they are not yet fully addressed in case law. This resource provides answers to these emerging accommodation questions, particularly addressing:

  • Mental health
  • Religion
  • Addiction
  • Family issues (elderly parents, ill family members)
  • Other groups commonly subjected to discrimination harassment or bullying based on sexual orientation, sexual identification, gender, age, etc.

This book will focus on the expectations employers need to strive for when accommodating job applicants, employees and third parties. It addresses essential information on best practices, case law, uncertainties, and undue hardship. Also included is an expansive Q&A section, based on real experiences.


Ultimately, this publication will provide professionals with practical, on-point information so that they can move forward with confidence in terms of how to accommodate, how to respond, and how to escalate to external resources when faced with these difficult workplace issues.
