HR & Legal on YOUR Side: Accommodating Trauma, Mental Health & Neurodiversity
Trauma and neurodiversity are so new, and human rights in this area are so complex, it's helpful to have some (informal) opinions on this topic from an employment lawyer. So that's what we're doing!
Time & Location
Feb 21, 2024, 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. EST
About the event
Last month, we talked about Working While Traumatized and Working While Neurodivergent. Now we'll hear from Julianna Saxberg, Canadian employment lawyer and self-identifying neurodivergent person, to answer common questions such as:
❓ What are employers legally required to accommodate?
❓ What are some pros and cons to disclosing [my disability, my identity] to an employer in order to ask for accommodation?
❓ What process should I follow if I want to ask for accommodation?
❓ What options do I have if my employer refuses to accommodate?
We’ll also offer general tips in approaching your employer for accommodation.
If you can, please join us live so you can ask your questions in real time! (As always, you can also ask questions in advance via email.)
