Pushor Mitchell is pleased to present “Disability Management, Human Rights and the Duty to Accommodate”, the next installment in our employment law series, Navigating the Seas of Change. Presenters are Greg Pratch and Derek Sienko, President, Diversified Rehabilitation Group.

Disability Management is a multi-dimensional process whereby employers engage in a deliberate and coordinated effort to reduce the effect of illness and injury on workforce productivity and to promote employee attachment.

In this presentation, Derek Sienko of Diversified Rehabilitation Group will present a discussion on best practices in disability management, including the importance of prevention, the employer’s role in supporting recovery and effective practices in working with WorkSafeBC and disability insurance providers. Employment lawyer Greg Pratch will complement this presentation with an overview of human rights in the workplace and by leading a discussion on the always challenging topics of the duty to accommodate and undue hardship.

The presentation will be held February 18, 2015 in the Pushor Mitchell boardroom. To register, please enroll through our Eventbrite page: Disability Management, Human Rights and the Duty to Accommodate
