Recent legal decisions have expanded the scope of what you're required to accommodate in the workplace. Claims for issues like family status and stress have become more frequent and understanding when you're required to make an accommodation has become much more challenging. The increased variety of accommodation issues has made keeping up with case law developments and understanding your accommodation obligations more difficult and more time-consuming.

INFONEX's 17th annual Managing Your Duty to Accommodate has been designed to update you on all of the recent case law that impacts your organization and give you the skills and strategies you need to make these accommodations effectively. Our faculty of leading experts will ensure that you walk away from the course with a clear understanding of what you're required to accommodate, and what you're not required to accommodate.

Review the latest case law for issues like family status, mental health, stress, and aging. Get practical advice on how to spot mental health and stress issues in your staff and how to make effective accommodations. Hear active case management strategies that will help you make accommodations efficiently and get employees back to work quickly. Get strategies for facilitating productive communication with your employees' doctors. Improve your skills for having difficult conversations with your employees. Learn strategies for how to explain accommodation requirements to managers.

It has become increasingly difficult to understand when you need to make accommodations and how to manage them. Join us in Ottawa to get caught up on case law developments and learn skills and strategies for accommodating your employees effectively. Register today!
