The pandemic has changed the way people work and placed heightened obligations on employers. Throughout 2021—the first full year working under pandemic-related rules—worker protection, health and safety and the duty to accommodate have emerged as some of the most complex matters for employers.

Join us as we guide you through some of the key labour and employment issues that arose during 2021.


In this Advantage CPD webinar, we will provide information on both the essentials of health and safety compliance as well as current trends including:

• employers’ health and safety obligations (including those most often overlooked!)
• strategies to proactively protect your workers, manage a safety inspector’s visit and defend against potential charges
• working from home: emerging issues and how to respond to them
• the duty to accommodate: recent trends

Audience and Learning Objectives

The goal of this webinar is to assist employers to better understand their obligations under health and safety legislation, to understand how to protect their workers, and to address some common health and safety issues. It will also identify emerging issues related to the work-from-home model and the duty to accommodate.
This webinar will include an interactive Q&A feature. A panel discussion will be built into the last 10 minutes of the session to address audience questions that are submitted.

Hicks Morley will endeavour to accommodate guests with a disability in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code guidelines and other applicable legislation.
