Covid-19 - Transitioning to the New Normal - Work Refusals
As the global pandemic became a reality in Canada, work refusals increased significantly. As more regions are entering Stage 3 of re-opening, businesses may once again see a resurgence in work refusals as a result of concerns over the virus. In Part 2 of our Challenge & Change: Transitioning to the New Normal webinar series we discuss work refusals under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA).
In this complimentary webinar we answer some of the common questions: How does the work refusal process work? Can your employees refuse to come into work just because they’re afraid of contracting Covid-19? How can you mitigate the risk of a valid work refusal under the OHSA and are there strategies or best practices that may also be helpful? This webinar is part of a series exploring many ways organizations will need to adapt from a workplace health & safety standpoint as we continue to navigate through these challenging times.
