Welcome to Episode No. 77 – for this Sunday, April 5th, 2020.
COVID-19 has brought to the forefront the importance of people and services that we may have all taken for granted, like the delivery people who have become a lifeline for our households, our healthcare workers, the frontline staff in your grocery store. Their work is considered essential – leaving a lot of those unable to work, wondering what to do next.
Thankfully our government has put into place the COVID-19 Economic Response Plan to help those who need it most – a plan that had to come together quickly, which includes the new Canada Emergency Response benefit, set to commence this week.
Canadian labour lawyer, Shelley Brown from Toronto joins us to discuss these emergency measures here in Canada as they relate to workers and employers.
I’ll see you later in the week. Again, stay safe. Be well. ♡
I’ve put together a quick Resource Summary highlighting emergency assistance resources for both individuals and businesses, including the CERB and important dates – click here! I would also like to remind listeners to continue to check Canada.ca for the latest program information as it gets released.
