general note
"November 30, 2011"
Psychological illnesses are present, and have been present in various forms and manifestations in the workplace for as long as there have been workplaces. It is only recently that employers are starting to understand the size of the challenge and the potential costs, both human and financial. This book is intended to specifically address psychological illnesses and disabilities so that the employer, the manager or the union representative is able to understand the size and scope of the problem and be able to differentiate performance issues from bona fide psychological impairments. Most importantly this book is intended to help the HR professional, manager or supervisor to ensure that Disability Management Programs and Return to Work processes are integrated such that these illnesses are taken into account.
