Helping employees with disabilities succeed at work
The Canadian workforce is diverse, and there has been increasing attention paid to the issue of disability in the workplace. Disability is a prohibited ground of discrimination in relation to employment across every Canadian jurisdiction, and employers have a duty to accommodate their employees’ disabilities up to the point of undue hardship.
Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP’s experienced employment lawyers and consultants are committed to working with both employees and employers to help employees with disabilities obtain the support and accommodations they need so that they can succeed in their work.
Our lawyers provide legal advice and representation to employees who are experiencing barriers to employment or discrimination as a result of their disabilities. We can assist employees with accommodation requests, as well as their successful return to work and reintegration into the workplace following a period of medical leave. We can also provide practical legal advice to employers of all sizes who are working to create workplaces that are more inclusive and accessible to employees with disabilities, in compliance with relevant legislation.
