Mental Illness Accommodation in the Workplace Posted onJuly 14, 2015September 9, 2020/ Devry Smith Frank LLP Mental Illness Accommodation in the Workplace At Devry Smith Frank LLP’s Human Resource Seminar, special guest Meghan Ferguson covers important topics in relation to dealing with mental illness accommodation in the workplace. Statistically, mental illness is no longer an issue that we can ignore. We try to distinguish the stigma of talking about mental health, but in the workplace, there is still a shy on it. When you look on 500 000 Canadians are unable to work due to mental illness issues. 1 in 4 Canadians will suffer from a mental disability. Now mental illness costs the Canadian economy 51 billion dollars each year. The Ontario Human Rights Commission produced a report titled the Mind that Matter on human rights and mental health. From that, they addressed issues affecting employment. They found that many employees don’t ask for help in regards to mental health as they are afraid of discrimination and termination. Ferguson covers all of these important topics and more regarding mental illness accommodation in the workplace.
