Employees With Disabilities: Employee Rights in the Workplace

Toronto employment lawyer Marty Rabinovitch talks about employees with disabilities and their rights in the workplace during his interview with Joe Terceira at the Real Estate 101 Show in Toronto.

Marty discusses what the rights are of an employee that has a disability.

An employee with a disability has the right to have that disability accommodated by their employer. An employer is not permitted to discriminate or treat that employee differently because of that disability.

Examples are:

1.  A disability could be physical such as a back injury which prevents the employee from doing heavy lifting.

2. A disability could also be a mental or developmental disorder and that could also include a learning disability.

He reviews what an employee should reveal to the employer and the obligations of the employer once revealed.
