The need to accommodate disabled employees is well-established in the US.  The same is true in Canada.

A very helpful article was published by Carissa Tanzola of the Toronto law firm of Sherrard Kuzz, which quickly set out what a Canadian HR person should know – it doesn’t have to be painful, she says.    Take “an individualized approach,” and  “understand the legal landscape.”

She then sets out “the legal landscape” from the prevailing statute (at least in Ontario), through the “four fundamental steps to accommodation,” in easy to understand bullet points.

She provides 7 helpful tips – which we will not re-print here so that you can read them in her own words.
