Duty to Accommodate: A Guide for Alberta Employers
Employers in Alberta are required to accommodate staff on the grounds protected under the Alberta Human Rights Act. As an employer, it is your duty to ensure that your workplace has the infrastructure and policies in place to accommodate all employees.
This guide provides information about the different types of workplace accommodation employers can provide, such as allowing for disability leave, offering alternative work, and modifying job duties. It also provides clarity on the employer’s duty to accommodate and what constitutes undue hardship.
