Through presentation and discussion, participants will learn about actions they can take to help their organization comply with the Employment Standard under The Accessibility for Manitobans Act. This one hour webinar targets individuals who are responsible for recruiting, hiring, and developing and implementing policies at their workplace or organization.
This is an opportunity to go beyond basic accessibility education and reconsider policies and practices in your workplace that do not comply with new accessibility standards. Hear from a presenter with a disability and experience as a career coach in the disability community.
- The first is to acquire an understanding of the AMA’s employment Standard.
- The second is to discuss barriers, namely, types of barriers, how to identify them and how to remove them.
- Then we’ll discuss how to accommodate your employees or potential candidates through the stages of hiring and onboarding.
- Lastly we’ll talk about returning to work, how to make the transition smooth for your employees. This will include discussing the seven principles for successful return to work as developed by the Institute for Work and Health.
American Sign Language and English Closed Captioning will be present at the event. Should you need additional accessibility accommodations please email Genevieve at genspark at ccednet.rcdec.ca before Friday, March 11th.
