The worker was a cleaner at St. Joseph's Hospi- tal in Toronto for many years. Starting in 2002, the hospital began accommodating her due to physi- cal limitations, eventually placing her in a clean- ing position with the lightest duties. However, in 2013, the worker arranged to be transferred to a cleaning position in a patient unit, without notifying HR or the occupational health departments. The hospital then invited the work- er to return to the accommodated position but the worker declined, saying she believed she could perform the regular duties of her new job. It soon became evident that the worker's limi- tations were impacting her ability to work in the new position, so the hospital moved her to a less difficult unit with some modifications to her job duties.
