The CHHMA held a webinar last Friday, May 1st for members with a presentation by the HR, health and safety and employee management company Peninsula Canada.  The webinar topic was “COVID-19 Crisis Management in Your Workplace” and it provided some guidance and food for thought for companies on managing the COVID-19 crisis in both the short-run and long-term.

Handling the main presentation was Ryan Wozniak, Senior Vice President of Operations & Legal for Peninsula Canada.  Prior to joining Peninsula in 2018, Ryan practiced employment law and commercial litigation for 12 years in Toronto. Ryan has acted in a wide variety of commercial and employment-related matters before all levels of court throughout Canada, including the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Court of Appeal for Ontario, the Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal, the Tax Court of Canada, the Ontario Labour Relations Board, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, the Canadian Human Rights Commission and private arbitrators. 

The 4 major topics covered during the 45 minute webinar were layoffs, remote working, government support programs (mainly CERB, CEWS & CEBA) and preparing for recovery-managing out of the crisis. If you would like a link to a recording of the webinar, please contact Nicole Gamble at the CHHMA (her contact info is at the end of the article).
