60 Minutes with RT: An Update on the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act
September 16, 2011 12 noon – 1pm EDT
As of January 1, 2012, private sector organizations will be required to comply with the “Accessibility Standards for Customer Service”, as part of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. This regulation makes Ontario the first province to implement mandatory accessibility standards. Organizations will need to create policies, comply with reporting requirements and most importantly train their employees. Employers can be penalized for noncompliance.
Join employment lawyers Janice Rubin and Cory Boyd for an informative and interactive hourlong discussion that will help you and your workplace prepare for the changes from the comfort of your office.
Our interactive discussion will include:
- An overview of the AODA compliance framework;
- How to prepare and train your employees for compliance with the Accessibility Standards for Customer Service;
- Guidance on what your policies should include;
- What the reporting requirements are; and
- What resources are available to help your workplace become compliant.
We are also able to create a Teleseminar program to meet the specific needs of your workplace on a variety of topics. Contact us to learn more.
Train up to four employees for $99. Registrants will receive written material in advance of the teleseminar. (Limit of four employees for $99. The $99 fee allows access to one phone line only).
Please note that no refunds will be given for cancellations. Substitution of participants is permissible with prior notification. If you are unable to find a substitute, you can transfer your registration to a future session at Rubin Thomlinson’s discretion.
