Emond Harnden releases COVID-19 Guide for Aviation-Industry Employers

 

COVID-19 UPDATES

  • Emond Harnden writes letter to federal government: temporary layoffs – Read letter
    In our view, and given the unprecedented crisis facing the country’s workplaces and economy, the Federal Government ought to act to temporarily lengthen or suspend the three-month layoff window and the requirements to qualify for a temporary layoff of a longer period under the Canada Labour Code and its regulations.

 

DECISIONS

  • Class action – Somwar v Fly Jamaica – 2020 ONSC 2140
    Individual plaintiff was passenger aboard defendant airline’s flight – crash landing – claimed damages for serious injuries – certified class, with deadline for class members to opt out of proceedings – another class member missed deadline because not properly notified – brought motion to opt out of proceedings – motion granted – class member sought to opt out because he had started an action before the opt-out deadline – no sudden change of heart
