One of the most challenging moments for human resources departments to manage stakeholders’ expectations, namely, managers and employees, is when an employee is about to return to work after a disability-related leave of absence. Having the appropriate documents in place is a good start. However, human resources departments must have the skills to navigate the minefield of issues that come with a return-to-work and accommodation, including reintegration to a team of employees – where most employers fail. This session will use disability-related accommodations, and the information used here could be recreated for other human rights grounds, such as family status, creed, and gender, with relevant adjustments.
