OPC Inc recommends employers in Ontario take a close look at this EEC ruling. This very closely mimics the requirement now under the IASR phase of the AODA Act for Ontario ie. whereby employers must ensure they recruit, hire, train, promote and provide performance reviews in an accessible way for all disabled potential employees. This includes in this case providing close captioning on recruitment websites, ASL interpretors being available, initial testing which is accessible. A strategic approach with proper budgets for implementation & on-going support from Sr Managers are key ingredients in making sure the AODA succeeds in its application in the workplace. Ask our AODA team how to get a process started in your workplace as the risks for brand & corporate image damage, law suits, Human Rights Complaints and AODA Directorate Penalties are high in both USA and Canada.
