Webinar: Introducing paid sick days in Ontario and what you really need to know

Wednesday, June 16, 2021 | 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM

On April 29, 2021 the province of Ontario introduced Bill 284, COVID-19 Putting Workers First Act. As a result of this Act, employers need to assess their sick leave entitlements to ensure compliance with the introduction of paid sick days in the province due to COVID-19. The program will be in effect until September 25, 2021, when the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB) is set to expire.

Our newest ONPHA Select partners and HR experts at Enliven HR have put together this FREE and practical overview to help you navigate this new legislation.

In this session we’ll cover:

  • an overview of Bill 284
  • what you really need to know about the new legislation
  • Q&A period for housing providers

Join us to get familiar with the new legislation and get the answers to all your questions directly from our HR consultants!
