Duty to Accommodate: A Guide for BC Employers
Employers in British Columbia are obligated to accommodate all employees on the grounds protected under the BC Human Rights Code. As an employer, it is your duty to ensure that your workplace is adequately accessible to all staff members.
This guide explores the different types of workplace accommodation employers can provide, such as offering alternative work, modifying job duties, and allowing for short-term and long-term disability leave. It also explains the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and the employee on accommodation in the workplace.
