Description

A lawyer or paralegal with a workers' compensation practice has a client base with diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds who may be unfamiliar with Canadian workplace law, the Canadian health care system, and the Ontario workplace safety and insurance system. Do you have a handle on the challenges that face linguistic minorities? Effective communication can also be exacerbated by the nature of workplace injuries; physical disabilities or mental health issues can add stress to your client’s experience of the legal system. Our presenters are experts who explain the current state of the research and development of WSIB guidelines for delivering services to linguistic minorities. They also discuss the role of the paralegal or lawyer in identifying and addressing issues faced by clients, with a focus on the client–professional relationship and the importance of promoting inclusivity and meaningful access to justice.‚Äč
