For employers, liability related to occupational health and safety for their employees has always been of critical concern. For key industries with more safety risks on the job, this concern is even more critical. Now that the COVID-19 virus is an unpredictable risk to employees in all workplaces, what are the responsibilities of employers to maintain health and safety regulations? In higher-risk workplaces, is there increased employer liability? Also, who regulates these health and safety standards and should workplaces with traditionally lower safety risks now expect visits from inspectors? What have we learned from the pandemic and how can employers create safer workplaces for their people?

Join our esteemed legal experts as they guide you through the new norms of health and safety protocol for workplaces. Learn about standards and expectations to apply to workplace guidelines and what to do if liability issues arise.
