Workshop to discuss managing disabled employees

Toronto employment lawyer Doug MacLeod will share his insights on how to manage disabled employees at an interactive workshop on Nov. 3.

MacLeod, principal at MacLeod Law Firm, and two workshop co-leaders will discuss how employers can work effectively with disabled employees (with non-occupational injuries) with solid HR disability management practices.

Topics to be discussed at the workshop will include:

  • What is a disability within the meaning of the Human Rights Code and what is the duty to accommodate;

  • Why having an attendance and sick leave policy and standardizing processes is key to managing absence successfully;

  • Who the key stakeholders are for each aspect and identifying their roles and responsibilities;

  • What elements need to be included in accommodation plans;

  • How to work with all parties collaboratively and facilitate a successful return to work;

  • How to successfully separate medical issues from performance-related matters.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. – noon, at the ESS Direct & Suite Success, 411 Huronia Rd., Unit 5 in Barrie.
