Help this Blitz and Please Also Make Public Any Disability Accessibility Barriers you Encounter in this Canada Election Campaign
EEOC Sues Neenah Paper for Disability Discrimination
An employer cannot single out an employee who has a disability and impose an over-protective rule on that person as a condition of employment, said EEOC
Detroit Field Office Trial Attorney Omar Weaver. Such actions represent the kind of differential treatment toward disabled individuals that the ADA was enacted to prohibit.
AODA Compliance for Private Sector and Not-for-Profit Employers
The deadlines for private and not-for-profit employers to comply with the Employment Standard under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) are quickly approaching.
Bronx Medical Facility Sued for Excluding Patients with Disabilities and Jeopardizing Their Health
Furthermore, the Complaint alleges that UCHC employs woefully inadequate practices when it comes to communicating with deaf patients and patients with
hearing loss, and fails to provide information in large print or other alternative formats to blind and low-vision patients.
The Business Case for Hiring People With Disabilities(PWDs)
Inclusive hiring can help businesses attract and retain skilled employees, and expand their range of customers and clients.
To increase awareness and promote the hiring, inclusion and advancement of people with disabilities in B.C., the Province has proclaimed September 2015 as the second annual Disability Employment Month.
