As you begin to prepare to recall staff (or think about it), and what a return to the workplace looks like. I thought I’d share a few links you may find useful.
Many Canadian employers implemented temporary layoffs due to the devastating financial impact of the COVID-19 crisis. These employers are entitled to recall their employees back to work at any point in time prior to the expiry of the applicable statutory layoff period.
