Infectious Disease Emergency Leave (IDEL) Extended Again

The word Update written in white on a chalkboard

The Ontario Government has once again extended the COVID-19 period to cover any employee who has been temporarily laid off or working with reduced wages and/or hours to July 31, 2022.

As a reminder, this regulation does not affect an employee’s right to pursue a common law claim for constructive dismissal. Please see our previous article for more information:
