Please ask your husband if he is in a union because I cannot provide a meaningful answer without knowing this information.

Expert:  Debra replied 1 year ago.

The law is that the employer is required to provide your husband with reasonable accommodations so long as these accommodations do not require the employer to suffer undo hardship. If the employer fails to provide these accommodations when the employer can do so, this would be considered to be discrimination on the basis of disability in employment and contrary to the Human Rights Code.

Your husband could then file a complaint with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.

Yes, your husband will need to provide a letter from the doctor setting out what accommodation he requires.
