COVID-19: Navigating Emergency Supports and EI Measures for Non-Profit Staff & Managers

April 9, 2020, 10:00 - 11:30 AM

Course Description:

To say these are unprecedented times is becoming the understatement of the century.  COVID-19 is not only taking its toll on our physical health, but it is seriously impacting our economic and emotional well-being. In response, federal and provincial governments have introduced a range of measures to assist individuals and families in weathering the short and medium term financial burden they face arising from actions to contain the virus.  This webinar walks you through the various types of assistance available and how you can guide your employees in taking advantage of them.  It focuses on what is available, who is eligible and what they can do to access these supports - information that is critical to your employees' peace of mind during this uncertain time.

Marsha Goldford, HR and non-profit organization specialist reviews the emergency employment insurance resources and supports available for non-profit organizations and helps you navigate the avalanche of information during the coronavirus crisis.
