GTA Accountants Network + Kalex Webinar
April 9, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
The COVID-19 virus has turned our world upside down. We are in a state of emergency, people have been told to self-isolate or socially distance, and non-essential businesses have been ordered to close. Businesses that remain open have seen dramatic drops in revenue. While legislation has been amended to provide for new leaves and increased eligibility for Employment Insurance benefits and other support, employers are struggling to understand their rights. Although many are turning to temporary layoffs or salary reductions, the reality is that those may constitute constructive dismissals and expose the company to liability that exceeds any cost savings.
Stuart and Nadia will lead a session in which they will discuss options for reducing labour costs and how to implement them, the assistance available to employers and employees, and the laws regarding the duty to maintain a safe workplace in this unprecedented situation.
