NOKTogether | Temporary layoff extension deadline today

Today, Aug. 25, is the deadline to submit applications to extend a “COVID-19 emergency layoff” beyond August 30.

Without this variance, the employment relationship will be permanently severed as of August 30, and eligible employees must be provided any severance they are owed as a result of termination. Applications must be received by today’s deadline to be considered.

If you require this variance, and you have not done so, please head to the province’s online portal where yourself and your workers can apply jointly to the Employment Standards Branch for a further temporary layoff variance.
