Paid Infectious Disease Emergency Leave Part 2 – Frequently Asked Questions

May 10, 2021 | Sherrard Kuzz LLP

On April 29, 2021, the Government of Ontario passed Bill 284, the COVID-19 Putting Workers First Act, 2021.  The legislation amends the Ontario Employment Standards Act, 2000 (“ESA”) to provide time off (paid and unpaid) for COVID-19 related matters including vaccination.


On April 30, 2021, we published a briefing note to address key components of Bill 284.  We now share with you common questions we have received from clients (not already addressed in the initial briefing note).
