Supporting workers with arthritis through job accommodations


A study about workplace supports for people with arthritis suggests that many affected workers don’t feel they need frequent help. The study, conducted by ACED project director Dr. Monique Gignac, a senior scientist and scientific co-director at the Institute for Work & Health (IWH), also found that people who can access workplace supports often report better outcomes at work. That can mean less job disruption, greater ability to concentrate on tasks and fewer changes to work hours.
