ACCOMMODATING ONTARIANS WITH DISABILITIES IN YOUR WORKPLACE – DO YOU COMPLY WITH ONTARIO’S CURRENT LAW? YOU MUST. READ ON…….

Just a reminder to all employers about the importance of continuing to comply with Ontario’s Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (the “AODA”), which requires a graduated, compliance program for most employers.

Specifically:

[1]        all private sector and not-for-profit organizations with twenty or more employees are required to file their fifth accessibility compliance report by December 31, 2020; and

[2]        organizations with fifty or more employees are required to complete their Multi-Year Accessibility Plans review by January 1, 2020.

Please contact us if you need any assistance with your AODA compliance, including:

•    past and upcoming AODA compliance dates and reporting deadlines and what your organization will need to accomplish, or should have accomplished by the deadlines;

•    an overview of what's required under each AODA accessibility standards: Standards for customer service, employment, information and communications, transportation, and the built environment for public spaces; and

•    how to develop a strategy for compliance now and into the future.
