This 2014-21 accessibility plan outlines the policies and actions put in place to improve opportunities for people with disabilities.
Statement of commitment
Rhodes & Williams Limited is committed to treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We believe in integration and equal opportunity. We are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner, and will do so by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.
Accessible Emergency Information
Rhodes & Williams will provide employees with disabilities with individualized emergency response information when necessary.
Rhodes & Williams will provide training to all employees on Ontario’s accessibility laws and on the Human Rights Code as it relates to people with disabilities. Training will be provided in a way that best suits their duties. Rhodes & Williams will train all employees by means of an email with required details and then subsequent training with new employees, as well as if our plans and policies change. This will have been completed by January 2, 2015.

Rhodes & Williams is committed to meeting the communication needs of people with disabilities. We will consult with people with disabilities, where necessary, to determine their information and communication needs. Rhodes & Williams will be sure that all websites and content conform with WCAG 2.0, Level AA, by January 1, 2021.
Rhodes & Williams is committed to fair and accessible employment practices. We will notify the public and staff via the job postings that, when requested, Rhodes & Williams will accommodate people with disabilities during the recruitment and assessment processes, and when people are hired.
Rhodes & Williams will take the following steps to create and put in place a process for developing individual accommodation plans and return-to-work policies for employees that have been absent due to a disability:
- Confirmation of what accommodations, if any, are needed in order for the employee to do their job properly.
