We previously reported that the United States had imposed restrictions on air travel (Air Travel Ban). The Air Travel Ban prohibits foreign nationals who have been physically present in a designated country/region (i.e., China, Iran, the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom, or Ireland) within the last 14 days from travelling to the United States.
Under the Employment Standards Act, 2000 and Ontario Regulation 285/01, “work” is deemed to be performed when an employee is travelling on business, even if that time is non-productive and outside normal business hours. Here are some ways to minimize that liability.
The NEXUS program is a joint initiative of United States Customs and Border Protection and the Canada Border Services Agency, which enables pre-approved, low-risk travellers to receive expedited entry when travelling to the United States or Canada. Unfortunately, not everyone will be in a position to satisfy the NEXUS eligibility criteria.
