Should your organization treat illness such as the flu, colds and other minor ailments as disabilities?
Are you aware of the law in this area?
Is the flu, etc., covered by human rights law and other Canadian legislation like Ontario’s Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act?
There has been considerable discussion about these issues on the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act Forum on LinkedIn (group membership required).
Like most legal issues, this one requires time-consuming research, which I am currently undertaking. I hope to report my findings to you soon.
I look forward to hearing your comments on this issue and reading the poll results.
I will be reporting the results of my legal research to you very soon.
Remember the mantra: Learn don’t litigate.
