Last September the Ontario Network of Injured Workers’ Groups presented a submission to the United Nations that the practice of “deeming” is a violation of human rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).This first session of the Bancroft Institute for Studies on Workers’ Compensation and Work Injury will explore the strategy and background of raising workers compensation issues as disability issues under international human rights law and will feature legal experts, academics, injured workers, disability rights activists, and more.
Location: Co-operative of Specialty Community Legal Clinics, 55 University Ave, 15th floor – Rm C1/C2.
The event is free but registration is required. Register online at Bancroft2020.eventbrite.ca.
