Event description


Mitigating Workplace Risk
Leveraging Government Assistance

For Ontario businesses, these are the most challenging times in decades. Not only must we grapple with the impact of widespread global economic and financial instability, but a range of fundamental workplace issues exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

On April 27, 2020 the federal government opened the portal for the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy. What could this mean for employers?

Join our panel of tax and employment law experts, as we help Ontario businesses understand: the shifting landscape; options to mitigate risk; and the potential to leverage opportunity.

Topics include:

  1. Managing employee leaves in a pandemic and post-pandemic workplace.

  1. Health and safety considerations.

  1. Layoffs, recalls and terminations – mitigating risk.

  1. Tax consequences to individuals receiving support under the Supplemental Unemployment Benefit (SUB) Program and Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB).

  1. The 10% Temporary Wage Subsidy and 75% Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) – how employers can qualify and tax consequences when they do.

  1. Unique issues with the CEWS for owner-managers and groups of employers.
