Small employers are not complying with Ontario’s new accessibility and employment laws

According to an AODA Alliance news release and a Nov. 18, 2013, Toronto Star article, the Ontario government fully knows that 70 percent of Ontario private sector organizations with at least 20 employees have not complied with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act’s (AODA) reporting requirements. Reports were due December 31, 2012. This is not surprising because in my experience, most small businesses are simply not aware of the law.
