The presenters will review the latest Federal programs available to workers and employers in response to COVID-19 as of April 17, 2020.

Employers thought recent whipsawing between two revisions to the Employment Standards Act, 2000 in one year was confusing.   However, that was nothing compared to the deluge of acronyms and information flooding us in this COVID-19 world.  CERBs, CEWS, work-sharing, not to mention OHSA and WSIB implications - if it feels like things are changing daily, you’re not imagining it.

He also regularly advises clients in addressing union organizing drives, as well as union applications for certification.
