Panel Webinar – Returning to Work for People with Disabilities in Covid-19
Work Wellness Institute panel of experts will speak to the following topics in this webinar session:
- Potential barriers and accommodation for Covid-19 in workspaces
- Employer bias (ex. assuming vulnerability)
- Long term steps for employers
- Rights for people living with disabilities in work environments (including the duty to disclose and any potential changes due to Covid-19)
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Canadian organizations have been challenged to refocus priorities and adapt to new business models while managing unprecedented processes and policies to accommodate remote and flexible working arrangements. This webinar will aim to inform and highlight new human resources challenges in disability management (e.g., risk assessment, disclosure policies and workplace safety) that are surfacing alongside increased mental health challenges and work/life balance strain among employees.
