This episode of the Business Decisions podcast is the audio recording of a recent webinar, Canadian Legal Requirements for COVID-19 Business Continuity & Workplace Safety, that was hosted by Angela Johnson, the Founder and President of Medical Confidence.
During the webinar, Dan Black of Caravel Law addresses how you can limit your risks as an employer as you re-open your business. What precautions should you take to protect your employees and customers? How can you use a tool like the My Health MaP’s Return To Workplace application from Medical Confidence to screen your employees and keep all of your employees and your workplace as safe as possible?
Gillian Grossman walks through how the app works and the steps involved in screening your employees and handling employees with symptoms.
During the Q&A Dan addresses whether it is a breach of privacy to ask your employees if they have tested positive for Covid-19. Can an employee refuse to answer health-related questions? How do you handle an employee who requires accommodation because of potential medical issues?
We hope you find the content helpful and appreciate our client, Medical Confidence allowing us to share it with you here.
