Webinar on EI and emergency benefits

April 29, 2020

Last week, 230 attendees from across the province tuned in to our webinar EI and Emergency Benefits for Workers. In this 45-minute webinar, employment lawyer David Brown explained the various benefits available to workers impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, what those benefits look like, and how to know which ones apply to your situation.

We're so grateful for the enthusiastic feedback: 

“This was an excellent webinar! Clear and informative. Thank you very much!!!”

“Thank you for the valuable information. Adds clarity to an ongoing/changing CERB. It is good to keep on top of these changes.“

“Thank you so much! This was my first webinar with People's Law School. The information gained today will help me better guide my immigrant employment clients through these difficult times. I will definitely register for other webinars you offer.”

If you missed the webinar, or want to share it or watch it again, you can now access the webinar recording. We've included a summary of highlights from the webinar, with corresponding pinpoint references.
