Employees Accommodation

Rosa Flora will take the following steps to develop and put in place a process for developing individual accommodation plans and return-to-work policies for employees that have been absent due to a disability. By January 1, 2016, we will:

  • We will develop individualized return to work plans as well as work with WSIB back to work specialists for those who have been injured on the job.
  • To the best of our ability have modified work available for those who are unable to perform their regular duties. We will take the following steps to ensure the accessibility needs of employees with disabilities are taken into account during the performance management, and reassignment processes. By January 1, 2016, we will:
  • Make performance management accessible by providing feedback and coaching to our employees in a way that is accessible to them, such as using plain language for an employee who has a learning disability or making performance management documents available in accessible formats upon request.

Other

Rosa Flora will review all requests identified by the public, employees, and customers of Rosa Flora
 take steps to prevent and remove identified accessibility barriers as necessary.

Design of Public Spaces

Rosa Flora does not have public spaces as outlined by the Design of Public Spaces or self-serve kiosks and as a result these regulations from the Act do not apply.
