Mandatory vaccination policies, infectious disease emergency leaves, wage subsidies, Canada emergency response benefits; quarantines, outbreaks – these are just some of the topics that have kept employers busy since the world was overtaken by the COVID-19 pandemic. It has all led to a dizzying amount of developments in Canadian labour and employment law.
The dockets of judges and arbitrators have been filled with COVID-19 labour and employment related matters. As a result, we are now seeing a steady stream of decisions that are having a profound impact on the relationship between Canadian employers and their employees.
The Dentons COVID-19 case catalogue is intended to provide employers with a snapshot of the labour and employment law cases to date that we believe are particularly important to the Canadian workplace. Whether you are considering what impact, if any, COVID-19 will have on an employee’s termination entitlements or whether an employee’s breach of your workplace’s COVID-19 protocols constitutes just cause for dismissal, we hope this resource will provide you with some helpful guidance.
