Workplace Modifications

Workplace Modifications

There is help available to pay for the cost of workplace modifications that may be needed to accommodate a worker with disability in a job. Assistance is available for a broad range of modifications including, but not limited to, physical and environmental workplace adjustments, computer software upgrades, vehicle modifications, communication technology devices and specific items of equipment an employee may require to do their job.

While the majority of workers with disability won’t require any workplace modifications, the Employment Assistance Fund aims to make accommodating employees with disability in your workplace easier.
