HR Services Consulting - Duty to Accommodate

Duty To Accommodate

In Canada, every employer has a legal duty to make every reasonable effort short of undue hardship to provide accommodation for both employees and job applicants regarding matters that are governed by the Human Rights Code. Efforts must be made to accommodate an employee who falls under one of the protected grounds of discrimination as outlined in the Human Rights Legislation. Every case is dealt with fairly and equitably and on an individual basis.

Having a knowledgeable HR position that understands the intricacies and legalities when a company is working with an employee or job applicant to find accommodation can ensure they hire the best person for the job based purely on their abilities and what they can bring to the table.
