The COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly developing, with media coverage focusing on its public health, economic and societal impact. Employers have been thrust into reactive mode as they deal with the pandemic's impact on the workplace, and many are perplexed about what they legally can and should do to respond, particularly given the Ontario government's order that all non-essential workplaces close and evolving requirements and changes in the law. 

Join Laura Williams and Joel Smith on Tuesday, April 14th, 2020 as they conduct a webinar designed to help HR Practitioners understand how to support their organizations in navigating  obligations, requirements, risks and strategic options in light of the significant legal and operational implications caused by COVID-19.  Attendees will explore the most recent developments, including those related to:

  • Health and Safety obligations, including work refusals
  • Employee leave entitlements
  • Layoffs
  • Workplace Safety and Insurance entitlement
  • Key human rights and harassment obligations
  • Implications arising from work from home arrangements
  • EI and government assistance programs and measures
  • Rules related to workplaces deemed essential and non-essential
  • Key content to include in employee communications
