Benefit Plans and COVID-19

About this Event

Registration: Half Day from 9:30am to 1:00pm via ZOOM Video Conference

Health benefits are a critical component of compensation. In this session we will examine a selection of issues and current trends in benefits that may impact and inform bargaining and collective agreement interpretation. Among the topics we will explore will be current benefit plan trends, the role of unions in governance, key recent cases in discrimination law, and changed and challenges in benefit plans arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
