Human rights codes in every Canadian province guarantee equal opportunities and rights under law for any person with a disability. That includes requiring an employer to accommodate these individuals to the point of undue hardship should the need arise. In Ontario, these requirements are also enforced under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA).
Our team is committed to helping organizations understand and satisfy their accommodation obligations on a proactive basis, before non-compliance results in potential damages and penalties for violations of federal or provincial legislation.
As a firm, Williams HR Law has taught us about the value of thinking proactively when it comes to employment law. They’ve helped us to think strategically and save money while avoiding unnecessary risk. It’s a refreshing change from the other firms we’ve worked with in the past.
We faced a situation where we had to terminate an employee under a very difficult set of circumstances, and our workplace culture was impacted as a result. Williams HR Law worked to understand our business and develop a customized strategy to help restore the great workplace environment that we used to have.
Williams HR Law works with some of Canada’s top companies, delivering a wide array of services ranging from legal compliance to workplace restoration.
Regardless of industry sector or location, we partner with our clients to provide customized legal solutions that integrate seamlessly with their organization’s goals to drive strong desired outcomes.
