Employers in Ontario must be cautious when dealing with sick employees. The employer must first determine whether the employee's illness constitutes a disability. If it does, the employer may have obligations under the Human Rights Code to take steps to accomodate that disability by altering the way in which the employee works. Careful analysis of the limitations imposed by the employee's condition is necessasry to provide the accomodation required by the Code.
