At Applied Systems Technologies Inc. we strive at all times to provide our goods and services in a way that respects the dignity and independence of people with disabilities. Accommodating employees and customers with disabilities not only makes good business sense and is the right thing to do – it’s also the law! As an organization, we are responsible for ensuring that our employees, as well as our facilities, policies, business practices and systems comply with the governing legislation and relevant best practices with regard to the accessibility for individuals with disabilities. We have therefore implemented policies and training programs for employees which address specific issues. These programs are tailored to particular groups of managers and employees, and include information on topics such as:

  • An overview of the governing legislation including the Human Rights Code and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, its regulations and accessibility standards
  • Non-discriminatory job posting, interviewing and hiring practices
  • Accommodating employees with disabilities
  • Communicating with customers with various types of disabilities
  • Communicating clearly and concisely by telephone
  • The use of assistive devices and alternatives to telephone communications
  • The use of service animals and support persons
  • The provision of accessible invoices/bills
  • Notices of temporary disruptions
  • Our relevant policies, practices and procedures
  • For more information about our policies and procedures relating to the AODA, please contact us.
