Online event


Many companies reduced staff in hopes to ride out the Pandemic. However, did the COVID-19 temporary layoff amount to constructive dismissal of your employee?

When the pandemic seized the world in March 2020, many Ontario Employers scrambled to survive by placing employees on a temporary layoff as they shut doors to fight COVID-19. Fast-forward to today, Ontario Courts are now speaking to whether those temporary layoffs were unlawful dismissals of employees, or whether they were rightfully done by employers. Join our session to learn whether the COVID-19 temporary layoff amounted to the constructive dismissal of your employee during the pandemic.

During this session we will also have time to cover one of the following pandemic related topics. During your registration, Vote for the topic you would like to see covered:

1. Has Covid-19 has increased or decreased a terminated employee’s severance entitlements? COVID-19 undeniably left a negative footprint on the Ontario economy, affecting employers and employees alike. For an employee dismissed amidst the pandemic-triggered economic downturn, do they get a bigger or lighter severance package?

2. Can COVID-19 vaccinations be mandated at the workplace? What are permissible workplace policies on Covid-19 vaccinations? What are best practices for implementing any workplace COVID-19 vaccination policies?
