Workplace Vaccination Policies Update

September 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

SPEAKER:  Keith LaBossiere, Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP

As COVID-19 vaccination policies are being developed in workplaces across the country, Keith LaBossiere, CEO & Managing Partner of Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP will discuss the developing legal considerations and potential implications in the workplace. Should your organization have a policy for testing and vaccination? What are an employer’s rights and obligations in this regard? While this is still a rapidly developing area of law, Keith will reference decisions coming out of other jurisdictions and possible approaches employers can consider (or should avoid), based on the information currently available. This session will be interactive and questions will be encouraged.

Please RSVP (PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED) to the Manitoba Bar Association online at www.cbapd.org.

You will need a computer or laptop (PC or Mac), smartphone or tablet with a microphone and webcam (built-in or external) and an internet connection.

If you will be participating from a laptop, you would also need to install a Zoom Client for Meetings from this site: https://zoom.us/download. If you are unsure whether you have the latest version of Zoom, please follow the instructions HERE.

If you are planning to participate from smartphone or tablet you would need to install an App from the Apple Store or Google Play.   if you are installing the app from the Apple Store or Google Play to use on an iPad, iPhone or Android device or tablet the free app is called “Zoom Cloud Meetings”.

We would recommend that you have either the Zoom Cloud Meetings App or the Zoom Client for Meetings downloaded at least 15 minutes before the meeting.

When you do join, please allow your device to join with audio.  This feature can be found under Join Options in an Apple or Android device or Join with Computer Audio if you are participating on a laptop.

All participants should ensure they have set up their Zoom information to display your actual name (not just your device name) so that everyone knows who is on the call and anyone not invited to attend will be more easily identified, this also helps us properly track attendance at PD sessions.
