Duty to Accommodate: A Guide for Ontario Employers

This guide explores the different forms workplace accommodation can take, such as revising a job description, adjusting workplace policies, or offering rehabilitation programs. It also outlines the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and the employee to provide a complete picture of the employer’s duty to accommodate.
