James Cameron Presented on Mental Health in the Workplace

On April 7, 2016, James Cameron presented on “When Mental Health Interferes with Work, What You Need to Know”, an Infobytes session presented by the Association of Professional Executives of the Public Service of Canada (“APEX”). Together with registered psychologist, Dr. Ron Seatter, James spoke on the legal and medical issues that arise when mental health issues interfere with work. The session included information on rights, entitlement, time limits, coverage and sick leave, from a legal perspective. The presentation also addressed information on what types of issues might result in a need to see a psychologist versus a psychiatrist, paperwork and/or reports which might be required, what happens if an insurer denies a claim, appeal rights, and what kind of expert evidence might be required if a dispute goes to court.
