Michael Murphy in workplace.ca | Independent Medical Examinations (IME) & the Duty to Accommodate

By Michael Murphy, at McInnes Cooper
All Canadian human rights laws require employers to accommodate disabled employees to the point of undue hardship. But (much to employers’ chagrin) none directly address the employer’s right to medical information (including independent medical examinations or IMEs) in the context of accommodation. In his article, Independent Medical Examinations & the Duty to Accommodate (PDF), as published by workplace.ca (a division of The Institute of Professional Management a.k.a. IPM), McInnes Cooper Labour & Employment Lawyer Michael Murphy discusses the Ontario Court decision in Bottiglia v. Ottawa Catholic School Board and the helpful guidance of offers employers on how to manage the accommodation process, particularly with respect to IMEs.
