As COVID-19 restrictions begin to loosen in some jurisdictions, employers must consider the return to work process and what that entails. This webinar is designed to assist employers in addressing the issues they will face when returning to work, both with respect to their employees and to the workplace.

In this presentation we will specifically discuss:

  • Managing employees’ refusal to return to work, absences and accommodation requirements
  • Adapting the workplace to health and safety needs with COVID-19

The 2022 Construction Labour “Open Period” – What Employers Need to Know

March 1 – April 30, 2022 is the “Open Period” for ICI collective agreements, and many non-ICI agreements, in Ontario. During this period members of construction unions can apply to the Ontario Labour Relations Board to terminate a union’s bargaining rights with their employer, or – more commonly – a rival union can apply to the Board to displace an existing union, in what is commonly known as a “raid”. During the Open Period employers will likely see increased union activity on sites as incumbent unions will seek to maintain member support, and as rival unions may try to gather support for a raid.

Join us on Wednesday, February 2nd for a discussion about what employers should expect and need to know if a decertification application or a displacement application involving their employees is filed at the Board.
