Details and specs:

The SARS crisis in 2003 made many of us think about how workplaces should respond to public health emergencies that affect the workplace. Indeed, terrorist attacks in supposedly safe cities like New York, Madrid and London, along with the power blackout in the summer of 2003 widened our perspective about public health in the workplace in the early part of the 21st century to include a full range of external events that could have immediate and often dramatic impacts on our ability to carry on with the routines of work and life. Although we have not been seriously impacted in recent decades, world health authorities continue to warn us about the potential for a worldwide influenza pandemic. If we have a full-blown flu pandemic, SARS will be remembered as the good old days. This book is meant for employers and their representatives, as well as for employees, including unionized employees, and their representatives. The purpose of this book is to review the various legal and moral obligations of an employer, and to discuss the many employment issues that are affected by medical emergencies, providing guidance for all types of workplaces on how to be better prepared for the next public health emergency. As a final note, although this book is written with reference largely to Ontario legislation, it should be of general application in all Canadian jurisdictions.
