The purpose of this post is to address some of the frequently asked questions we have received from employees in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic relating to government support, including Canada Emergency Response Benefit, Employment Insurance, and Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy.
The three popular articles this week on HRinfodesk deal with completing a record of employment, the federal COVID-19 10 percent wage subsidy and the Canada Emergency Response Benefit.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have rapid and far-reaching effects on Canadian workplaces. In this article, we answer those questions for Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec. In all cases, please be advised that different considerations may apply under the terms of a collective agreement, if applicable.
