AODA Multi-year Plans – Will you be ready?


So where do you stand now with the AODA?

Assuming your company (yes even if you are a one person law firm) is now in compliance with the Customer Service Standard of the AODA, the harder part of the AODA will now be creating a multi-year plan.

The Employment Standards now requires all employers to provide an accessible environment across all stages of the employment cycle from recruit to talent management (and absence management). Learning more about the Human Rights Code for Ontario will be critical for all of the key players in your workplace around the accommodation for disabilities.

The areas of expertise which will help move law firms forward are ergonomic/human factors design and disability management/accommodation. The time to move on this is now as timelines are short for compliance. Jane Sleeth from Optimal Performance will guide us through the next phase of this process. 

Our Speaker

Over the past 23 years, Jane has been involved in the management and prevention of disability as a physiotherapist; rehabilitation department manager in a large Toronto Hospital; wellness and prevention consultant; case manager and managing director of Optimal Performance. which Jane founded in 2001.

Jane holds an Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology and Physiology from the University of Toronto; and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physiotherapy also from the University of Toronto.  While studying for her Hon. B. of P. & H.E., Jane was one of the main researchers for the published study “The Physiological Impact of Exercise in the Cold”, Primary Author R. Sheppard, U of T/DCIEM.  After completion of Jane’s B.Sc. in Physiotherapy she was co-researcher for a study conducted at Toronto East General Hospital which was internally published and is entitled “The Impact of Mental Training on Functional and Healing Outcomes of Patients with Carpal Tunnel Release”.

Jane is a regular and sought after speaker at national and international conferences speaking about how Optimal Performance has collectively taken a unique and innovative approach to the management and prevention of injuries illness and disability in the workplace which differs from any insurance company or other ergonomic and disability management firms in the country.

Jane has a considerable body of published work and articles in national health and safety; ergonomic; human resources and peer reviewed journals.
