Canadian employers have a legal obligation to accommodate employees to the point of undue hardship. What is accommodation? What is undue hardship? These questions and more will be answered during this very interactive program.
The program explores some of the more contemporary accommodation issues such as: mental illness, duty to inquire, Covid-19, gender transition, medical cannabis / zero tolerance policies and a whole lot more.
Accommodation is an important human rights issue that requires a delicate balance of empathy, trust, credibility, and perseverance. As usual, we approach this topic from the perspective of the employer and provide participants with practical solutions to issues facing the modern manager.

We are extremely excited about virtual-CANSCOTT© our new virtual training & coaching service. Some of our training programs will be offered virtually and to the public; that’s right public programs!
Although fairly self-explanatory, a public program is one that is offered to the general public. This type of delivery aligns us with what some of our Clients have been asking for.
Payment options include direct billing (i.e. pre-authorization required) or email Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).
In the near future, we will be advertising our brand new (i.e. and first virtual public program) called: “The Duty to Accommodate: Manager’s Program”, a 4-hour session. Stay tuned!

The BC Human Rights Commission has posted a guide addressing Covid-19. This document can be found here: https://bchumanrights.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/BC-OHRC_COVID19_Policy-V5.pdf. While this guide admittedly is not in place of legal advice, it is instructive of the Commission’s perspective. In this document, the BC Human Rights Commissioner is quoted as follows:
“In this time of rapidly changing circumstances, neither the Human Rights Tribunal nor the courts have had time to weigh in on whether COVID-19 amounts to a disability. However, in my view as BC’s Human Rights Commissioner, it does”.
At CANSCOTT, we will be following this story closely as this topic unfolds and incorporating it into our Human Rights & Duty to Accommodate training. For more info visit us right here at canscott.com.
