It is estimated that approximately 5% of employees are dealing with depression in the workplace. While the law clearly dictates that you must accommodate these and other employees, meeting that duty and minimizing the risk of human rights litigation is daunting.

Join us at the Canadian Institute’s Western Canadian Forum on The Duty To Accommodate: Effective Risk Management of Employees Affected by Mental Illness, Stress, or Addictions, June 23 & 24, 2009, and learn the law and strategies to help you meet legal standards and revise your policies in light of the latest legal developments. You will receive timely, practical advice delivered by leading legal experts to help you minimize legal risks.

Topics covered include:

Innovative accommodation strategies for employees suffering from addictions and other kinds of mental illness
Expanding your access to employee medical information
Developing low cost, high gain strategies to reduce absenteeism
Effective return-to-work strategies
And much more!

PLUS! Attend our pre-conference workshop, A Management Primer on Mental Health Symptoms and Successful Accommodation Practices, and learn more about common mental disorders that may be negatively affecting your staff.
