As an employer, have you ever considered if your workplace is adequately accessible to all employees? Employers in Ontario are obligated to accommodate all employees on any grounds protected by the Ontario Human Rights Code.
This guide explores the different forms workplace accommodation can take; such as, revising a job description, adjusting workplace policies or offering rehabilitation programs. Furthermore, the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and the employee are outlined to provide a complete picture of what duty to accommodate is.
