Challenge even the most seasoned HR pro
Why you’ll want to attend. “I need… a new supervisor, an emotional support parrot, an exemption from working before or after darkness, and leave to seek treatment in Hawaii, in February.” These are just a handful of employee accommodation requests unearthed by Anne-Marie Storey. Combine these with the more conventional and appropriate requests flowing from the Covid world – individuals working remotely and individuals considering where their talents are best suited – and the matter of workplace accommodations becomes more central than ever to your work in HR. In this session, Anne-Marie will guide attendees through accommodation and related leave issues with examples, advice, recommendations, and, perhaps most importantly, humor.
