There may be times in your career in which there are issues preventing you from working in the same way in which you were once able. These reasons could include a health issue, a family status issue, or any other protected ground under Human Rights legislation. Employers have certain obligations to adjust rules, policies, or practices to enable you to maintain your employment in these scenarios. Generally, this arises in connection with needs that are related to the grounds of discrimination. This is where the employer’s duty to accommodate comes into play. Your Local Union representatives are well versed in accommodation issues and should you ever have a question about accommodation, we encourage you to reach out to them.
