COVID-19 is No Excuse for Unfair Termination
Employers cannot use COVID-19 as an excuse to breach contracts and collective agreements terminating contracts on grounds of lockdowns, just laying workers off, issues with pay,etc.
The prescription of unfair termination will still apply amidst COVID-19 if Employers do not do the right things. "We are not in normal times"- that is no excuse to unfairly displace employees. There is a right way to do things. It’ starts by knowing what you can and cannot do and how to go about what you want to do. Join us on the 7th April as we look at "COVID-19 contracts /collective agreements-what employers should know".
Employees are faced with the uncertainty of job security and pay amongst other things. Emotions are high and anxiety is also high. In the session, we will discuss the core issues surrounding varying employment contracts, collective agreements and policies. We will discuss what employers can consider and what they can and cannot do. Join in the discussion and gain the insights you need to make decisions.
