There is help available to pay for the cost of workplace modifications that may be needed to accommodate a worker with a 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 a disability won’t require any workplace modifications, the Employment Assistance Fund aims to make accommodating employees with disability in your workplace easier.
The Employment assistance Fund provides assistance to employers of people with disability and mental health condition by providing financial assistance to purchase a range of work related modifications and services. Assistance is available for people who are about to start a job, or who are currently working, as well as those who require assistance to find and prepare for work.
