Governments are taking extraordinary steps to control the spread of the virus —asking everyone to avoid unnecessary travel outside their homes, restricting border crossings, closing non-essential businesses and shuttering places where groups of people gather.

The impacts of these efforts to flatten the curve have been felt by every one of us and employers have been left to navigate these unparalleled times.
Employers need to be aware of the legal framework within which they can make decisions around 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/work refusals, leaves of absence, employment standards changes, and how to react to essential services orders. This timely conversation will help leaders navigate the global COVID-19 crisis.
