Modified Duties / Alternate Work Arrangements

The University will undertake to find suitable employment, based on medical documentation, for any employee who becomes temporarily or permanently unable to perform his/her regular work due to injury or illness. While the onus lies with the University in identifying and facilitating reasonable accommodations, Unions and employees share responsibility in ensuring the success of return-to-work efforts. A collaborative approach is essential to the effectiveness of this multi-party process.

In making such accommodations, the University may consider any job, task, function or combination of function or tasks which are meaningful, productive and can be safely performed by an employee who suffers from diminished capacity, temporary or permanent, without increased risk of re-injury to self or others.
