Join us on Aug. 17, 2021 from 2-3:30 p.m. to learn about key considerations for employers if their employees are working remotely, in the office, or adopting a hybrid model with KPMG Canada.

This Ask an Expert session will be a focused discussion on key considerations for employers if their employees are working remotely, returning to the office, or a blend of both. Topics will include information with regards to potential work models, employee expectations, legal risk areas around vaccination policies and other changes required to enable various work models.

This event is part one of a two-part mini-series on transitioning work models. The second event will be on Sept. 8. Details are forthcoming.
