Managing employees with illnesses can be a daunting task. Our program is intended to educate employers on their rights when it comes to verifying claims of Illness, disability and workplace injuries. Employers have rights and it is imperative they know the type of information they are entitled to receive when managing leaves.

What participants will learn:

<  How to obtain useful medical information about an employee's condition

<  What an employee’s obligations are during accommodation and the return to work process

<  How to implement and monitor a gradual return to work program

<  What is (and is not) a "disability" under the Human Rights Code?

<  How to Discipline (or terminate) for illness or injury-related attendance issues

<  Reporting and return-to-work obligations under the WSIB

<  How to handle recurring conditions

<  Entitlements to WSIB cost relief

<  How to discipline (or terminate) after a WSIB claim

<  How to object to a WSIB ruling


We are listening to you, our Members.

You have provided feedback that you would prefer to receive soft copies of presentations instead of printed materials, in order to be mindful of the environment and to reduce our carbon footprint.  Therefore, in 2019, HRPA Professional Development will, whenever possible, provide a soft copy of the participant course material.  We will not produce printed materials unless there is reason to do so (e.g. program format).

If you absolutely need a hard copy, we request that you print and bring it with you.  Hard copies will not be available on site.

Thank you for your understanding.
