Jonluca Neal’s Commitment
Jonluca Neal (the “Company”) is committed to accessibility in our customer service and employment standards. As such, this Policy applies to all members of the Company. This Policy does not replace or substitute the requirements established under the Code or other applicable accessibility laws.
The Company prides itself on fostering an inclusive organizational culture that is guided by the AODA’s Four Core Principles, which focuses on identifying, removing, and preventing barriers for persons with disabilities. The Four Core Principles are: Dignity, Equal Opportunity, Independence, and Integration.
Customer Service Standard
The Company is committed to providing inclusive customer service experiences for our clients/customers and others seeking our services. All team members are expected to comply with the spirit and intent of this policy when providing services to our community or otherwise representing or conducting business on behalf of the Company.
The Company is committed to providing a welcoming, respectful, and inclusive environment to our employees and community members with disabilities. Our employment standards will incorporate regulatory requirements and best practices throughout the employment relationship.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that consider their disability upon request. We will work with the person with a disability to determine what method of communication works for them, including communication via email instead of the phone.
People with disabilities may use their assistive devices when accessing our goods, services, or facilities. In cases where the assistive device presents a significant and unavoidable health or safety concern or may not be permitted for other reasons, other measures will be used to ensure the person with a disability can access our goods, services, or facilities upon request. We will ensure that our staff are trained and familiar with various assistive devices that we have on-site or will provide devices that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods, services, or facilities.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public. If a service animal is excluded by law, we will suggest appropriate alternatives and ensure that the person can access, obtain, use, or benefit from our goods, services, or facilities where possible.
A person with a disability whom a support person accompanies will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises.

We will notify our customers promptly if there is a planned or unexpected disruption to services or facilities for customers with disabilities. This notice will include information about the reason for the disruption, its anticipated length of time, and a description of alternative facilities or services, if available.

Equal Opportunity Employer
The Company is committed to building a team that reflects the diversity and inclusivity of the community in which we work.
