Event Summary

COVID-19 Employer Update No. 7

Canada is reopening amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, following months of government shutdowns and working from home, and at a time of increased social activism. In order to ensure a successful transition, it is crucial that Ontario employers consider the implications of the Reopening Ontario Act and that employers across the country understand the amendments to the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) program, the challenges faced with returning employees to work, and how to address employee activism in the workplace (and online) in the current social climate.

This one-hour webinar will address the practical and legal issues for employers as Canada returns to work and businesses adapt to the new normal.

The topics of focus include the following:

  • The Reopening (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Ontario Act
  • Bill C-20 and Amendments to the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) program
  • Lessons Learned From Returning to Work – Managing Employees and Health & Safety Policies
  • Addressing Employee Activism – Social Media Activity, Demonstrations, and Initiatives at Work


Our complimentary webinars address the practical and legal issues for Canadian employers.
