Description:

Bring your current workplace policy manuals and laptops.  This practical seminar includes a hands-on workshop to draft compliant policies tailored to your organization’s needs.

January 1, 2016, signaled the deadline for compliance with another set of requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (“AODA”). The AODA is a comprehensive piece of legislation with a broad array of accessibility requirements related to an organization’s interactions with the public, customers, and employees. Although the requirements are being phased in over time, by now most employers are required to be compliant with the majority of the AODA requirements, including the Customer Service Standard and the Employment Standard.

AODA enforcement ramped up last fall with the first AODA audit blitz. Organizations should take steps now to ensure they are compliant before being faced with an audit and potential non-compliance penalties.  

This training seminar will provide you with practical step-by-step guidance on how to comply with the requirements under the AODA. The seminar will utilize an interactive approach to ensure that participants not only gain a clear understanding of their obligations but leave with the tools needed to perfect their AODA policies and procedures.

At this interactive half day seminar you will learn:

  • The scope and purposes of the legislation and enforcement regime
  • Strategies and best practices to ensure ongoing compliance with the AODA and avoid unnecessary financial penalties
  • Practical advice on drafting AODA compliant policies and procedures
