Return to Work and Accommodation Department / Accessibility

Return to Work and Accommodation

The Return to Work and Accommodation Department was developed to ensure creative, consistent and just assistance for those employees requiring access to accommodation and/or the Sick Leave Benefit, to avoid employee absence, unless necessary, and to ensure an early and safe return to work for all employees at Queens University.

Individualized Emergency Response Plans

The Individualized Emergency Response Plans are in place to ensure that those employees who require assistance to evacuate a building during an emergency are properly assisted.

Email the Return to Work & Accommodation Department at hrrtw@queensu.ca for more information.

Occupational Illness or Injury

Have you suffered a work related injury or illness? It is important to report this incident to your supervisor, so that they can report it to the Department of Environmental Health and Safety (EH/S). If required, EH/S will then ensure the injury or illness is reported to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB).

Information on incident reporting can be found on the Department of Environmental Health and Safety’s website.

WSIB cases are referred to Return to Work and Accommodation Services following an injury or illness resulting in greater than three days of lost time and/or if the employee requires workplace accommodation.
