During these unprecedented times, the workplace environment has been shifting to more employees working remotely. With this surge of remote work, employers may be facing unfamiliar legal implications.  At the same time, some workplaces are welcoming employees back and navigating the “new normal”, which includes the obligation for screening in the workplace. As always, whether employees are working from home or the office, the courts are continuing to interpret contracts in challenging ways that may cost your business by increasing severance costs.

Please join Osler’s Employment & Labor team as we discuss the following:

  • COVID-19 screening requirements for employees entering the workplace

  • Issues with remote work, including employee monitoring and “bring your own device” programs

  • Employees who refuse work or refuse to attend the workplace

  • The Supreme Court’s Decision in Matthews regarding bonus plans

The team will finish off with a brief “sprint” review of other important recent topics and case decisions in employment and labor law, including new court cases dealing with termination clauses, stock options and other claims.

We hope you can join us!
