The duty to accommodate can be one of the most difficult issues facing human resources professionals today. The legal landscape keeps changing, to say nothing of the difficulty of dealing with what are often tricky or complicated individual cases.
For the past seven years, INFONEX’s Ottawa Duty to Accommodate training session has been one of the most well-respected sources of information in Canada for federally-regulated employers. This event brings together leading HR practitioners, legal experts, regulators and key industry resource people to discuss and develop solutions to both day-to-day and extraordinary problems.
This year’s event continues that tradition. We’ve brought back some of the best-received speakers from previous years, and mixed in a number of new and exciting perspectives. They’ll provide you with lessons learned and best practices you can use in your day-to-day challenges.
Attend the March 2011 event and you’ll get:
  • Updates on the latest legal and regulatory developments and what you need to do in response
  • Updates from a number of the key players, including the Canadian Human Rights Commission and the Canadian Mental Health Commission
  • A focus on your key concerns, including dealing with mental health accommodation, return to work, and working with physicians
This is the only training event in Canada that consistently delivers high-quality information and techniques specifically focused on the needs of federally-regulated employers. If you deal with accommodation or disability management, you can’t afford to miss out on this annual update. Register today!
