Though the COVID-19 pandemic has created a number of challenges for employers in Canada, one of the most devastating is its ongoing impact on jobs. Employers who have no choice but to layoff valued employees are in an incredibly difficult position, and often don’t know what to do or where to turn, especially in light of all the recent changes surrounding group benefits, government benefits, Human Resource recommendations, and more. They also don’t know what their options are for helping look after their valued employees until the employees can be called back to work – a condition that depends both on government rules regarding businesses reopening and on the employer’s financial ability to pay employee wages.
Wiegers Financial & Benefits’ Layoff Toolkit is designed to assist employers by providing them the information, recommendations, and tools they need when laying off employees due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Toolkit includes information, recommendations, and template letters and forms that employers can use to help ensure they’re taking the correct steps and doing what they can to help their employees in terms of such things as extending their benefits coverage for as long as their group insurance carrier allows.
If you would like a copy of the Wiegers Financial & Benefits COVID-19 Layoff Toolkit, please contact us by phone at (306) 244-0949 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
