With news of the Wuhan Novel Coronavirus making headlines internationally and two positive cases now in Toronto (one confirmed and one presumptive), risk of potential exposure may cause concern for employees and employers. In this environment of heightened awareness, an employer must balance its legal obligation to take every reasonable precaution to protect the health and safety of employees against its obligation to provide a workplace free of harassment and discrimination.
As most employers can attest, complaints of workplace harassment are on the rise. Complicating matters is that employees are no longer content to restrict the airing of their complaints to specialized human rights tribunals.
