Lancaster House audio conference: Accommodating episodic disabilities—the latest law and research

12:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. EDT

What are the most common challenges in accommodating workers with episodic disabilities? How should key communication challenges be dealt with? What types of accommodations are generally helpful to workers with episodic disabilities? How should workplace parties deal with performance concerns related an employee's episodic disability?

These are just some of the questions examined at a May 14 audio conference hosted by The Lancaster House. Join Institute for Work & Health Scientific Co-Director and Senior Scientist Dr. Monique Gignac as she shares accommodation best practices identified by her research, while leading labour lawyers provide guidance on meeting legal obligations.
