“Webinar: Coronavirus: What do employers need to know?” by Cassandra Williamson-Hopp, BenefitsCanada.com

BenefitsCanada.com quotes Toronto lawyer Marc Rodrigue in an article on employers responsibilities around benefits, pension provision during coronavirus.

In addition to the shift in working environments, another big concern is layoffs, with many employers forced to cease operations because there isn’t any business coming in or they’ve been mandated to close by the government. “From a legal standpoint, unless required by law, I’m not aware of a province that requires, under its employment law statutes, benefits to continue during layoffs,” said Mark Rodrigue, partner in the employment and human rights group at Fasken LLP.
