Webinar on worker rights during coronavirus

April 9, 2020

We made our webinar debut on April 3 with Your Rights as a Worker in the Time of Coronavirus. Employment lawyer Sara Forte answered common questions on the minds of workers, factors to consider in weighing options, and steps to take to be part of the solution.

We were thrilled to be joined live by 150 guests from across the province. Participant feedback about the webinar has been incredible:

"Really very timely and responsive to the needs of workers and direct service providers. Much appreciated.”

“Great to hear the preventative measures a worker might take.”

“This was very engaging and helpful!”

If you missed the live broadcast, you can now access the webinar recording. You will find:

During the live broadcast, fingers were flying as questions came in through the Q&A feature. Keep an eye on our expanding coronavirus coverage, as we’ll be posting answers to the most common questions shortly.
