In addition, we can assist with the upcoming changes to the Employment Standards Act that will be tabled shortly with the legislature in response to the recent declaration of a provincial emergency. Our lawyers are working remotely in all of our respective offices and are available to assist in understanding the amended legislation and its implementation going forward.
