Since March 2020 there have been widespread temporary layoffs (or a reduction in wages or hours) due to COVID-19 related business slow down or (hopefully) non-permanent shutdowns.

But when does a temporary-layoff automatically become a termination under the Employment Standards Act? Can a contract override ESA? What rights do employers and employees have if there isn’t an enforceable contract? Can employees claim constructive dismissal? And how do the new Infectious Diseases Emergency Leave provisions factor in?

In this session, Jennifer Chan, of JTC Litigation (Toronto) and Samantha Kompa of Kompa Law (Belleville) will delve into these questions and bring clarity for you and your employer or employee clients.
