abstract
"Complex challenges can arise when handling disability issues in the workplace. Using this guide, lawyers and HR professionals will be able to explore and tackle those challenges. The Law on Disability Issues in the Workplace offers a practical and concise approach that considers all aspects of disability claims, shaped by the experiences and knowledge of experts in the field of employment law. This text is divided into two parts. Part One describes advancing and defending claims for a disability benefit. This includes topics such as evidentiary issues, onus of proof, and the insurer’s duty of good faith. Part Two details the common law and human rights concerns at play with a disability issue. This includes available remedies for successful disability claims, employee privacy matters, and the application of privileges to disability actions. By analyzing these claims alongside the policies and legislation that impact them, this guide serves as a complete resource to anyone seeking guidance or commentary on cases involving a disability issue."--Publisher's website.
