Description:

Workers' Rights during Covid-19: A webinar for front line workers

Many workers are uncertain about their rights at work during the COVID-19 pandemic. Do workers have the right to refuse work due to fear of exposure to COVID-19? Is there job protection if a worker chooses to stay home to care for a child or family member?

Get the latest updates as Ontario workers face unprecedented challenges on the job and working from home. What benefits and leaves are available for workers at this time and what obligations do employers have to protect them? Experts from the community legal sector will be sharing up-to-date and practical information on workers' rights during COVID-19.

Speakers:

  • Nabila Qureshi, staff employment lawyer at the Income Security Advocacy Clinic (ISAC)
  • John No, staff employment lawyer at Parkdale Community Legal Services (PCLS)
