Supreme Court rules on injured workers: a major gain

The Fédération interprofessionnelle de la santé du Québec–FIQ is thrilled about the Supreme Court of Canada’s ruling on the protection of injured workers. Now employers will be required to reasonably accommodate an employee disabled by a workplace injury.

“It’s a major step forward which will give workers increased protection. Healthcare professionals often work under difficult conditions and are, unfortunately, at risk of workplace injuries. This ruling will give them more protection,” said FIQ President Nancy Bédard.
