Alex Lucifero is an employment lawyer and managing partner of Samfiru Tumarkin LLP’s Ottawa office. He joined Kristy Cameron on Ottawa Now to discuss employee rights as Ontario continues to ease restrictions on workplaces amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

  • How should an employee be notified when they are returning to work? How much advance notice do they need?
  • I am a senior with a preexisting health condition? Should I return to the workplace if I am recalled?
  • I am concerned that my workplace doesn’t allow for proper physical distancing. What should I do?
