Worker compensation amid COVID a key topic
Don’t forget to register for Canadian Occupational Safety’s OHS Law Masterclass on September 21, 2021.
Key Media and COS are excited to bring in some of the nation’s top legal minds to share their expertise.
The masterclass will hopefully help answer all your burning legal questions. More so than ever before, worker health and safety is a hot topic for employers across Canada.
COVID-19 has been on the top of everyone’s mind this year, especially those working in the occupational health and safety sector.
Recent concerns have largely centered around vaccine mandates in the workplace – more and more businesses and organizations are requiring them and it can certainly be a legal headache. In addition to vaccines, managing COVID-19 long haul compensation is also a huge concern.
Over 26,000 claims have been filed by employees who have contracted COVID-19 at work in Canada.
How can safety leaders determine compensation for long haulers? And broadly, how can companies protect their employees by preventing transmission at work?
“Employers should not forego the importance of a risk assessment and control measures, when it comes to preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace and protecting worker safety,” said Cathy Chandler in her most recent column for COS.
Join in the panel led by Rajbir Bhinder, Associate, Goulart Workplace Lawyers, to learn about workplace safety measures to prevent viral transmission, guidance on planning and prevention policies and legal insights into employee rights amid the pandemic.
