The Legal Perspectives – Kellie Gray, O’Connor MacLeod Hanna LLP
The return to the workplace is exciting but brings with it many legal questions: ‘What happens if my employees refuse to come back to the office?’ ‘Do I need to put in place a vaccination policy?’ ‘If so, how should I do that and what are the risks?’ ‘Can I even ask employees about their vaccination status?’ ‘How should I approach people who are unwilling to comply with health and safety measures in place?’ We will discuss the emerging legal landscape to help guide you through the transition back to the office.

The requirements are in place, COVID-19 Safety Plan, masks, physical distancing, screening and now vaccine mandates are coming up. It’s important to keep up to date with the requirements for your business as you consider vaccine mandates for customers and visitors and preventing cases and outbreaks in your workplace.
