Emerging Employment Issues 3 Months into COVID-19
The legal landscape for employers keeps changing in the COVID Era. On May 29, 2020, the Ontario government released new regulations around layoffs and wage cuts that will likely affect thousands of employers and many more employees across the province. This session will explain how these regulations will help employers and the limits on that help.
In the meantime, the reopening of workplaces is leading to an increase in both (a) workers with school-age children requiring family status accommodations and (b) employees refusing to return to workplaces they consider unsafe. This session will help to make sure that you are aware of the latest changes and equipped to deal with them.

About the Instructor(s)
Employment Litigator Stephen Wolpert is not afraid to take the big shot. Having played basketball throughout the world, Stephen knows precisely how to focus when the game is on the line – a skill he practices whether in the courtroom or during negotiations with adversaries over his clients’ cases.
Stephen joined Whitten & Lublin Employment & Labour Lawyers in 2016 to continue his litigation practice, with a focus on the more complex employment law disputes, including sophisticated dismissal claims and human rights matters, particularly those that are not “slam dunks”. Previously, Stephen spent 7 years at a leading Toronto litigation law firm, where he handled all types of litigation disputes. Thus, he knows his way around the courtroom and does not back down from his opponents, no matter how large the case or how many opponents they send his way.
