Have you been contacted by Handi Transit to investigate the safety standards of your wheelchair? Are they asking to come into your home to take pictures and to document your mobility device? Demand that you be treated like a citizen. Be sure you get the right information and appropriate notice before choosing to allow inspectors into your home.

ILRC and the community continue its work with the Manitoba Ombudsman to provide fair and equitable service for citizens with disabilities. Stay tuned for further updates.

SFMC Quick Tip of the Day
Easter Sunday, the August Civic holiday, and Boxing Day are not general holidays, therefore, you are NOT required to pay either Stat Pay (the 5% rule), nor 1.5x wage rate. They are considered regular days of work. However, please remember that if your staff work on these days, and they go into an Overtime (OT) position, you must pay them at a rate of 1.5x wage for all OT hours worked.
