The Ontario Electrical League is hosting an online information session featuring the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development (MLTSD) to help you understand your employment standards and occupational health and safety rights and obligations as they relate to COVID-19.
Join us on Thursday, May 6 at 4 p.m. for an informative session with subject-matter experts from the Ministry who will answer frequently asked questions about COVID-19, such as:
- What flexibility is there around changing hours of work?
- Can an employee be fired if they refuse to go back to work due to a family obligation related to COVID-19?
- Who is responsible for protecting workers against COVID-19 in the workplace?
- Can a worker refuse to work if they feel unsafe due to COVID-19?
There will also be a Q&A period following the discussion.
