A Safe Return to Work post-COVID-19
While the world is still reeling from ongoing COVID-19 concerns, many provinces have announced plans to relax public health restrictions put in place when the global pandemic locked down most of the Country. For employers, this may mean the opportunity to resume business in some capacity but will also require employers to make difficult decisions around their business operations on a go forward basis.
Join the McInnes Cooper Labour and Employment Team for a virtual roundtable discussion to consider planning strategies for a safe return to work in a post-COVID -19 world. While these are still very uncertain times, we’ll identify several workforce, health and safety, and business continuity considerations to help you prepare.
