Episodic disabilities, such as depression, anxiety, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis are characterized by periods of good health alternating with periods of illness or disability. Because symptoms of these disabilities fluctuate, they create unique accommodation challenges. The Institute for Work & Health is currently developing evidence-based workplace resources to support workplace parties in meeting these challenges. In this session, Monique Gignac, the leader of this research effort, will discuss the best practices identified by her research while leading labour lawyers provide guidance on meeting legal obligations.
