Introducing a new guide for requesting workplace accommodations in Alberta

March 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT


EXPERTS: PolicyWise for Children & Families and the Alberta Human Rights Commission

Does your nonprofit team want to learn how to better help your clients requesting workplace accommodations?

Alberta employers must accommodate employees’ needs based on the “protected grounds” covered under the Alberta Human Rights Act. Accommodations should work for the needs of both the employee and the employer.

PolicyWise for Children & Families and the Alberta Human Rights Commission collaborated to develop a guide for nonprofits to help their clients’ requests for workplace accommodations. The guide will help nonprofits discuss with clients what the duty to accommodate means and how to request and negotiate accommodations with employers by:

  • Helping clients understand their employee rights and discuss accommodation requests confidently with their employers
  • Preparing clients for conversations, collaborations, and compromises to achieve accommodations
  • Helping clients communicate their needs effectively, be flexible and creative, and protect their dignity, privacy, and livelihood.
  • Providing clients with the accompanying form to document their conversation with the employer.
