LIVE VIRTUAL SESSION
May 23, 2019 | 9:00 am - 4:30 pm EST
Chronic stress claims can arise from excessive work-related stressors, including workplace harassment and bullying.
Workers in Ontario, BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories and Nunavut who suffer from chronic mental stress may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
Organizations that take action to prevent chronic stress have less absenteeism, fewer injuries, fewer workplace conflicts, higher productivity, greater employee engagement and creativity, and more satisfied customers. They will also have fewer claims and be better able to accommodate employees who suffer from mental illness.

WHAT ATTENDEES SAY
“Attending Liz and Denise’s workshop on how to manage accommodations when return to work is a factor provided me with valuable information that I will be applying in my job immediately. It helped me have a mental shift in the way I approach these situations, and left me feeling more empowered and confident to handle them effectively. They provided a tangible tool I can draw upon in the future, as well as some other valuable resources. I loved learning from people with a lot of experience in this field, and it was convenient to be able to attend by videoconference." - R. Van Rijn
