CIMA Hosting Pandemic-Focused Webinar for Music Industry Employers

For its members only, CIMA is hosting a webinar with Laura Williams designed to help music industry employers understand the COVID-19 pandemic.

Date: Wednesday, April 8th, 2020
Time: 12 noon (EST)
Registration: Available for CIMA members only

Session Description:
The COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly developing, with media coverage focusing on its public health, economic and societal implications. Employers have been thrust into a reactive mode as they deal with the pandemic’s impact on the workplace, and many are perplexed about what they legally can and should do to respond, particularly with regards to the Ontario government’s shutdown of all non-essential workplaces and the evolving requirements and changes to the law.

Join Laura Williams on Wednesday, April 8th, 2020 at 12 noon (EST) as she hosts a webinar designed to help music industry employers understand their obligations, requirements, risks and strategic options in light of the significant legal and operational implications caused by COVID-19.  Attendees will explore the most recent developments, including those related to:

  • Employee leave entitlements
  • EI and government assistance programs and measures
  • Layoffs
  • Key human rights and harassment obligations
  • Implications of work-from-home arrangements
  • Regulations related to non-essential workplaces
  • Key content to include in employee communications


To facilitate Laura’s ability to address as many questions as possible, send your questions in advance to info@williamshrlaw.com.  Laura will also address questions that arise from the content in the live Q&A session during the webinar.
