Conference: The employer’s duty to accommodate

PSAC-Quebec’s Equity Groups present a conference on the employer’s duty to accommodate with our legal advisor Zeni Andrade. The purpose of this webinar is to inform members about the legal basis of the duty to accommodate, to provide a better understanding of the notion of undue hardship, and to offer tools to facilitate the management of duty to accommodate cases.

This webinar is open to all PSAC-Quebec members and will be offered in French only. No registration is required. 

Date and time: Thursday, December 7, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm ET

Zeni Andrade joined PSAC as legal counsel in December 2022. Prior to that, he worked mainly in the field of labour law for both government organizations (Commission des normes du travail and Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail) and labour organizations, and has done so for over a decade.

The conference will be followed by a 15-minute question period.

We look forward to seeing you there!

In the meantime, watch our video “Accommodation – It’s a right !” that raises awareness about the duty to accommodate. Accommodation means reviewing and revising rules, policies, practices or standards to incorporate alternative arrangements that eliminate discriminatory barriers. The video also covers employer and employee positive obligations toward maintaining an inclusive and discrimination-free work environment.
