About the Webinar

The second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic is now well underway, and employers are having to adjust to all types of new realities, from COVID-screening their workforce, to supervising employees who are working remotely, to covering last-minute absences when employees need to self-isolate. At the same time, however, some things never change: there will always be employees that are just plain difficult to manage. For tips and strategies on how to manage employees – and especially difficult ones – during these challenging times, please join Alanna Twohey of the labour and employment law firm Emond Harnden LLP for a webinar that will address the following topics:

  •  Handling a COVID-related work refusal
  • Requests for childcare accommodation: separating “needs” from “wants”
  • Managing attendance without doctor’s notes
  • Ensuring productivity with a remote workforce
  • Imposing discipline
