“Canada Provides COVID-19 Emergency Benefits Response” by Catherine Skrzypinski, SHRM.org

SHRM.org quotes Toronto lawyer Mathias Link in an article about Canada’s response to COVID-19 and a review of the eligibility requirements for CERB and CEWS.

Government programs such as the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) and the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) have changed constantly since their inception in response to the pandemic, said Mathias Link, an attorney with Fasken in Toronto.

"People placed on a temporary layoff—those who are out of work and then called back—can apply for CERB," Link explained. "The benefit is also for work disruption—like parents who need to take care of their children or someone sick with the coronavirus."
