Register now for an employer forum: Navigating the Medical Information Maze

You can still register for an upcoming employer forum scheduled for November 20, 2013 in Edmonton. The Alberta Human Rights Commission, together with the Human Resources Institute of Alberta, Enbridge, SMS Equipment, Edmonton Chamber of Commerce and the Teamsters Union, is offering a breakfast forum for employers to discuss the potential challenges in obtaining employee medical information and to identify some of the issues that arise when medical information is involved. This is the second session in the Duty to Accommodate employer forum series.

Janice Ashcroft, Senior Legal Counsel, Office of the Chief of the Commission and Tribunals for the Alberta Human Rights Commission; Mary Golab, Portfolio Officer for the Privacy Commission; and Darrell Peterson, Senior Legal Counsel for Enbridge Pipelines, will provide the human rights framework under which medical information may be requested. Participants will discuss common scenarios that many companies face and will develop an understanding of their rights and obligations regarding employee medical information. A panel of industry and agency experts will be available to address questions from the participants.

To learn more about the forum, see Navigating the Medical Information Maze (PDF). You can register online. For more information, call Jane Maze at 780-422-1924 in Edmonton. You can call toll-free from Alberta locations outside Edmonton. Registration is limited to 60 participants.
