Pursuant to Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act (“OHSA”), an employer has reporting obligations when a worker is exposed to the COVID-19 virus in the workplace. An employer specifically must do the following:

  • Inform the Ministry of Labour in writing within four (4) days of being advised that an employee has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus;
  • Notify the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (“WSIB”) that an employee has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus;
  • Notify the workplace’s Joint Health and Safety Committee; and
  • Notify the trade union (if applicable).

If your employee has tested positive for COVID-19 and you wish to better understand your legal obligations, please contact Toronto employment lawyers, Sultan Lawyers at 416-214-5111 or via email to mlahert@sultanlawyers.com.
