A health and safety inspector just showed up to my place of business. What do I do?
Inspectors can visit an employer’s workplace at any time without a warrant or notice. If an inspector is in your workplace, be welcoming and remain calm. Answer their questions to the best of your ability and promptly provide any requested documentation. If your organization has been issued a ticket, fine or order, be cognizant of the timeframe for adhering to the order. They will likely conduct a follow-up visit and you want to minimize any further consequences. Reach out to a member of our team to ensure that your business is meeting all health and safety requirements.
My employee has asked for a COVID-19 related accommodation. Do I need to accommodate them?
It depends. There are a number of reasons why your employee may be requesting accommodations and as the pandemic continues to evolve, so does provincial and federal employment legislation. Address each accommodation request individually. A solution for one may not work for someone else. Reach out to a member of our team to discuss your options.
