The legal implications of return to work policies, remote work, and hybrid work arrangements can be complex and varied. Employers must consider a range of laws and regulations when developing and implementing policies related to these work arrangements, including labor and employment laws, health and safety regulations, and the Human Rights Code.
In this presentation, we will explore the rights and obligations of employers as they transition some or all employees back to the office, whether on a full or part-time basis. Topics of discussion will include: management rights, employee rights and accommodation under the Human Rights Code, constructive dismissal risks, jurisdiction (i.e., which laws apply when an employee is working outside of their province or country), health and safety considerations (including vaccines), and setting both the employer and employee up for success in a remote or hybrid work environment.
Overall, it is important for employers to carefully consider and plan for the legal implications of return to work policies, remote work, and hybrid work arrangements. By being aware of their rights and obligations, employers can ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations and set their employees up for success in these changing work arrangements.
