If we terminate an employee in Ontario immediately, but pay them in lieu of working notice, when does their benefits coverage end ?  Does it end on the day of termination or does it end on the last day of the notice period?

Our payroll expert, Alan McEwan, advises that benefit coverage must continue through the end of the notice period required under the ESA. Does that answer your question? If not, feel free to contact me at glennd@bongarde with your follow-up questions. Thanks. Glenn
