In May 2020, the Dentons Employment team launched the Return to Work Toolkit. Almost 16 months later, we are back again covering the need-to-know employment issues that employers are currently facing.

In the second edition of the Ontario Return to the Workplace Toolkit, we discuss topics such as: 

  • Can I require my employees to return to the workplace?
  • Can employers require employees to be vaccinated?
  • Vaccination-related accommodation
  • Can I ask for proof of vaccination?

We hope that this Toolkit will provide employers with some of the background information they need to create their own return-to-work plans.

If you would like more information about the Toolkit, please contact Catherine CoulterAndy PushalikAdrian MiedemaJulia Dales or another member of the Employment and Labour team.
