Advice for employers dealing with COVID-19

Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 2:00 pm, Eastern Time

We are living through unprecedented times. Although the risk to most Canadians from coronavirus (COVID-19) remains low, public health officials are taking extraordinary steps to control the spread of the virus —asking everyone to avoid unnecessary travel outside their homes, closing the borders to non-residents, and shuttering places where groups of people gather.

Now employers need to know the legal framework related to the steps that they need to take stemming from government declarations and the spread of the virus. Andrew Shaw and Shyama Talukdar, employment lawyers from Baker McKenzie LLP, will help you understand your obligations and provide practical advice on workplace health and safety and employment law issues, including the need to ensure compliance with human rights and privacy laws. 

This timely 30-minute webinar will help leaders navigate the global COVID-19 crisis.
