In any week, 500,000 Canadians are absent from work due to stress and mental health concerns. These numbers are not only staggering, they are growing worse, as incidents of depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions continue to rise.
While statistics such as these stress the value of workplace wellness campaigns, they also reinforce the importance of fully understanding and complying with human rights obligations such as they duty to accommodate.
In this webinar, employment and human rights lawyer, David Brown, will discuss the always challenging topics of human rights in the workplace, the duty to accommodate and due hardship, with a specific focus on mental illness. David will also provide practical thoughts on effective communication with employees on medical leave, the employer's role in supporting recovery, and effective practices in working with WorkSafeBC and disability insurance providers.
In this session, participants will learn:
- Human Rights in the Workplace
- Duty to Accommodate
- Undue Hardship
- Disability Management
Who Should Attend
All levels of HR practitioners, junior and mid-level HR managers/supervisors will find this presentation particularly useful.
David Brown, Kent Employment Law, is an individualist. His nonconformist mindset and passion for transformation set him apart in a profession steeped (and sometimes mired) in tradition. Where others spot problems, David sees possibility and promise. He understands and appreciates not just the practice but the business of law. Add to all this his disarming wit, bellowing voice, and lofty stature, and there's no mistaking him in a crowd. A trusted workplace advisor to companies in British Columbia, David is firm in his belief that employment relationships should be mutually beneficial to employers and employees alike, founded on a relationship of trust and respect.
