COVID-19 Legal Resource Page
COVID-19 has had an unprecedented impact on all aspects of our working lives. Employees had many questions about their workplace rights and entitlements, and our blog posts helped provide some answers.
Now, as businesses across Canada are now slowly reopening, employees have new questions about their rights and entitlements. We can help you find the answers as we enter the first phases of returning to the workplace. We’ll be continuing to publish posts on the topics you need to know about as Ontario continues through its phases of reopening.
Please note that these blog posts are for informational purposes only and are not legal advice. Since the law relating to employee rights and benefits is rapidly changing as a result of the pandemic, we will work to keep this information up to date.
