The spread of COVID-19 has reached unprecedented heights with the cancellation of major sports leagues and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau going into self-isolation after his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, tested positive for coronavirus.

Unnecessary travel and social gatherings are being restricted across Canada. As the virus advances, employers are staring down decisions on social distancing, work-from-home policy and crisis communications with employee health and safety top of mind.

Join our webinar on March 19 at 3:30 p.m. when David Reiter, a partner with Aird and Berlis in Toronto, and Katie Robertson, an emergency and crisis communications management expert, will discuss employer responsibilities in times of pandemics and emergencies.

The webinar is co-hosted by OHS Canada and Talent Canada.
