As the crisis unfolds and the economy begins to reopen, both candidates and employers in Canada have several questions in their minds. Most employers are wondering how they can stay productive and protect their workers at the same time. Some candidates are asking whether there will be a second outbreak. So, below we’ve answered questions that are most frequently asked by employers and candidates.
We have updated our Pandemic Plan and appointed response teams to stay abreast with the latest pandemic developments. We are following all the guidelines of the Ontario government and have to implement proactive measures to ensure the safety of our clients, candidates, and colleagues.
ORS Employment is offering services since March 2020. We are fully operational and whether you need one employee or several workers, we can fulfill all your staffing needs. Depending on your needs, we also offer virtual onboarding services. Our team is fully equipped to screen, recruit, and place candidates efficiently and quickly.
Since the outbreak of the pandemic, ORS Employment has taken all necessary measures to prevent virus spread. Screening candidates and associates proactively is a part of our COVID-19 response strategy. Screening has become compulsory in all our offices to limit exposure. Also, we have made the candidate screening form mandatory.
People with a history of respiratory or other diseases are indeed more vulnerable to COVID-19. To know your options, contact our representative.
If you have met this person within 14 days of return then contact us before reporting for work. Our team will perform a risk assessment and may suggest you stay home for 14 days. You may also contact your doctor for further guidance.
You must contact our representative before going to work if you experience any symptoms of COVID-19 like cough or fever. Also, report us immediately whether you’re waiting for a COVID report or tested positive. You should inform us if you have traveled outside of Canada or met someone who has returned from international travel in the last 14 days. Contact us even if your family member or someone you came in contact with has tested positive for COVID-19.
If you’re unable to work due to any reasons related to COVID-19, then you need to consult the Government of Canada’s website to get information about Employment Insurance and other details. https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-socialdevelopment/corporate/notices/coronavirus.htmlp>
