As Ontario works towards flattening the COVID-19 curve and reopening, long-term care homes continue to experience the most significant changes and serious impacts of this crisis. This is especially the case when it comes to managing the staffing and human resources concerns which have accompanied the pandemic. Join this webinar to discuss many of the most pressing issues including employee rights and protections, pandemic pay, employee testing, workplace health and safety, personal protective equipment, and more. A toolkit will also be shared for assessing and supporting absent healthcare workers’ return to work. There will be opportunity for discussion – you are welcome to submit your questions in advance so that they can be fully explored.
