COVID-19 Return to Work

Building Resiliency and Reopening Your Business During COVID-19

Is your business prepared to safely welcome back employees and customers after the COVID-19 pandemic?

Based on the recommendations of Health Canada and the CDC, all employers will need to consider how best to manage and decrease the future spread of COVID-19 and mitigate the risk in the workplace. This may include activities in one or more of the following areas:

  • reducing transmission among employees and customers
  • maintaining healthy business operations
  • maintaining a healthy work environment

Employers should anticipate Human Resource management challenges:

  • Leave Entitlements
  • Rights for Employers and Employees
  • Harassment and Privacy issues
  • Contracts and terminations / shortages of work

Employers are faced with navigating ever -changing legislation and updating policies and procedures to reflect the current state while anticipating the future needs of the business.

If you do not have the internal resources to manage during this critical time, we have a variety of programs to help you optimize your return to operations
