Human Rights Leg­is­la­tion and Safe­ty Leg­is­la­tion do not always work har­mo­nious­ly togeth­er. When con­flict occurs, one must be care­ful to achieve the safe­ty objec­tive with a min­i­mal impact to fun­da­men­tal human rights. This sem­i­nar will dis­cuss the major areas of con­flict includ­ing: pre-employ­ment med­ical test­ing and med­ical infor­ma­tion, duty to accom­mo­date dis­abil­i­ties, pro­vi­sion of pro­grams in dif­fer­ent lan­guages, drug and alco­hol test­ing, and PPE and reli­gious prac­tices. Also, this sem­i­nar will acquaint you with the Human Rights Process and dis­cuss strate­gies to ensure that you and your com­pa­ny are com­ply­ing with the legislation.
