The CBA’s National Labour and Employment Law Section created a pandemic preparedness resource guide to address key questions for employers, unions and employees.
This guide helps lawyers prepare their clients and advise them during a pandemic. It can also be used by lawyers to assess the effect a pandemic could have on their own workplace. It covers such things as pandemic plans, vaccination requirements, work refusals, forced absences, compassionate care leave and doctor’s notes. The guide includes a concise two-page chart that can be shared with clients and covers what to expect and what measures to take during three different stages of a pandemic in the workplace.
