  • What flexibility is there around changing hours of work?
  • Can an employee be fired if they refuse to go back to work due to a family obligation related to COVID-19?
  • Who is responsible for protecting workers against COVID-19 in the workplace?
  • Can a worker refuse to work if they feel unsafe due to COVID-19?

There will also be a Q&A period where you can ask and get answers to your own questions.*Please note: the session may last up to three hours long, depending on the length of the Q&A.
