Employers are required by law to accommodate workers with disabilities. But how far do they have to go? Pretty damn far.
CUPE’s latest disability rights fact sheet, The duty to accommodate: How far does an employer have to go? spells out many of the ways workers can be accommodated, from modifying the work environment, to retraining and more.
Workers often aren’t aware of the accommodations available to them. Even union members don’t always realize what they can access in the workplace.
