  • Discussion of the  legal and health and safety obligations to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 in your schools
  • Teacher, staff and student rights
  • Best practices for:
    • recalling employees to work in both unionized and non-union workplaces
    • ensuring employee and student safety
    • effective management of work refusals
    • avoiding workplace grievances
  • Establishing and following policies and procedures to address and mitigate COVID-19 risks in your schools
  • Developing continuity of learning plans for students with disabilities
  • Avoiding discrimination claims.
