Mandatory Vaccinations and Working Parents' Rights if COVID-19 Outbreak at Kids' School

The Ontario government has extended the province's Infectious Disease Emergency Leave (IDEL) for a fourth time, with expiry occurring in early January 2022. IDEL gives employers the ability (under provincial law) to put workers on a temporary layoff due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Employment lawyer Lior Samfiru, co-founding partner at Samfiru Tumarkin LLP, explains on Global News' Work: What's Next why employees who remain on IDEL still have the ability to treat the layoff as a termination and get full severance pay.
