COVID-19 has significantly disrupted what it means for an employee “to go to work.” Instead of physically being in the workplace, many employers and employees are adapting to new ways of working remotely. In this episode of the Canadian Employment and Labour law podcast, Alison Walsh and Adrian Elmslie continue their discussion on remote working arrangements, the challenges and issues employers should be aware of. They will also be addressing complying with employment standards rules, the privacy implications of installing monitoring software and occupational health and safety obligations.
