Informing Employees of Supports
Magnussen Home will continue to inform its employees of its policies (and any updates to those policies) used to support employees with disabilities, including policies on the provision of job accommodations that take into account an employee’s accessibility needs due to disability. This information will be provided to new employees as soon as practicable after commencing employment.
Accessible Formats and Communication Supports for Employees
Upon the request of an employee with a disability, Magnussen Home will consult with the employee to provide, or arrange for the provision of, accessible formats and communication supports for information that is needed to perform his/her job, and information that is generally available to other employees.
In determining the suitability of an accessible format or communication support, Magnussen Home will consult with the employee making the request.
Workplace Emergency Response Information
Magnussen Home will provide individualized workplace emergency response information to employees who have a disability, if the disability is such that the individualized information is necessary, and if Magnussen Home is aware of the need for accommodation due to the employee’s disability. Magnussen Home will provide this information as soon as practicable after becoming aware of the need for accommodation.
Where the employee requires assistance, Magnussen Home will, with the consent of the employee, provide the workplace emergency response information to the person designated by Magnussen Home to provide assistance to the employee.
Magnussen Home will review the individualized workplace emergency response information when the employee moves to a different location in the organization, when the employee’s overall accommodations needs or plans are reviewed.
Documented Individual Accommodation Plans
Magnussen Home will maintain a written process for the development of documented individual accommodation plans for employees with disabilities.
If requested, information regarding accessible formats and communications supports provided will also be included in individual accommodation plans.
In addition, the plans will include individualized workplace emergency response information (where required), and will identify any other accommodation that is to be provided.
