Accessible Employment Standard
The Accessibility Standard for Employment will help Ontario businesses and municipalities make accessibility a regular part of finding, hiring and supporting employees with disabilities.
Municipalities will have to:
- Let job applicants know that recruitment and hiring processes will be modified to accommodate their disabilities, if requested.
- Build the accessibility needs of employees into their human resources practices.
- Create a written process (not applicable to small organizations) for developing and documenting individual accommodation plans for employees with disabilities.
- Help employees stay safe in an emergency by providing them with individualized emergency response information when necessary
