Employers might need to start paying their personnel who miss work due to COVID-19. However, this bill proposed by the Minister of Labour would only last until September 25th of this year. In addition, “COVID-19 worker income protection benefit”, which is a new program by the government would provide workers with $1000 each week for up to 4 weeks. How these sick day programs relate to existing government benefits is not clear as of yet. To help us understand the legalities is Jonathan Borelli.
