How to comply with two laws at the same time

Learning the little bit of information contained herein may very well prevent your organization from litigating a very expensive legal action.

In my last post, I told you about a wonderful neighbourhood business that may, or may not, be complying with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and the Ontario Human Right Code (HRC). That post contained a little test of your understanding of these two laws. If you missed it, you can go back and take the test now (requires LinkedIn membership).

Feedback included this link:

Visual/audio learners will appreciate this short movie.

My skill-testing question for this week: What is the functional difference between the AODA and the HRC? (In other words, which law is opportunity-focused rather than penalty-focused?)

Looking forward to your feedback, see ya in a couple of weeks.
