HR Home Forums Community From an employer perspective if we “lay off” an employee due to “shortage of work” we stil issue a ROE and incdiate Shortage of Work. My question are we can still lay employees off if needed – correct? The rules aound layoffs under Federal Labour Standards remain the same under Federal Labour Standards – Correct?

    Right. List Code A (Shortage of work) in block 16 and follow the normal temporary layoff rules. A bunch of jurisdictions have changed their ESA temporary layoff rules for COVID-19, but FED isn’t one of them. Of course, I haven’t actually checked in the last 2 days, so I’m not aware of any FED changes that have come down in the past 48 hours. But I’ll do a quick check tomorrow and notify u immediately if anything’s happened. Glenn
