HR Update Publishes Article by Andrew Vey on Workplace Accommodation

Vey Willetts lawyer Andrew Vey recently authored an article in the May 2017 edition of HR Update entitled, "Just Accommodate Me: Legal Obligations in the Accommodation Process." The article considers the roles that the employer, the employee and the union (where present) are required to play in ensuring that reasonable accommodation in the workplace is provided.

In the article, Vey notes that the parties to an accommodation process are "well-advised to keep an open mind, ensure ongoing communication and work collaboratively to reach a practical solution."
