In accordance with Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act, employers have an obligation to ensure they are providing a safe working environment for their employees. Therefore, if an employer believes that their business has been compromised with respect to maintaining a safe working environment for their employees, an employer may close their business until the safety concerns are addressed.

Whether an employer is obligated to provide compensation to their employees during this time will depend on a variety of factors, such as applicable employment law legislation and the language of existing employment contracts.

If you are an employer and want legal advice on the obligation to your employees in the COVID era, please contact Toronto employment lawyers, Sultan Lawyers at 416-214-5111 or via email at khayward@sultanlawyers.com.
