Webinar Wednesday – FWTA LLP: Managing employee disabilities & the legalities involved

Date: January 24, 2018
Time: 2:00 pm  to  3:00 pm

Please register for our upcoming Jan 24th webinar with Diane Laranja of Filion Wakely Thorup Angeletti LLP.

Filion Wakely Thorup AngelettiAn employer’s duties and obligations in respect of employees with disabilities are numerous and complex. A failure to properly manage employees with disabilities may result in a number of potential liabilities, including grievances, civil suits, and human rights complaints. Furthermore, there is a strong business case for implementing an effective workplace disability management program, as it may assist employers in controlling employee health-related costs.
In this session, we will provide an overview and refresher on practical strategies for managing employee disabilities in the workplace within the boundaries of the duty to accommodate. We will discuss:  
  •  The roles and responsibilities of the employer and the employee
  • Accommodating a disabled employee and facilitating a return to work
  • Best practices for disability management policies and practices 
Our session will end with a brief question-and-answer period. We look forward to having you join us.
