In case your HR, IT, Purchasing, Facility Management, Diversity Managers and Senior leaders think the AODA is not an issue to deal with or be cognizant of please read this article. The liabilities are real and this includes audits of workplaces by the Directorate which commenced January  of 2012.

And remember apart from each of these legal forums who will hear cases regarding lack of accommodation for disability there is also your company’s well developed corporate image and customer trust at risk by not undertaking all of the steps and processes required by AODA law.
