As an employer you have a duty to accommodate employees with disabilities, unless it would cause undue hardship, even if their injury is not work-related.
The Code’s protection extends to employees, temporary, casual and contract staff, and other persons in a work context, such as volunteers and people who work to gain experience or for benefits. See our employment guide, Human Rights at Work and our Policy and Guidelines on Disability and the Duty to Accommodate for details about your rights and responsibilities under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
Accommodation requests are not limited to disability-related needs. An employee has the right to request accommodation for needs based on any Code ground.
