Arbitrator rules on paid sick leave during self-isolation
Irv Kleiner was interviewed by Canadian HR Reporter on the exact circumstances in which an employee is able to access paid sick leave during self-isolation due to COVID-19.
An Ontario arbitrator has provided some clarity after ruling the exact circumstances in which an employee is able to access paid sick leave during self-isolation due to COVID-19.
“Clearly a requirement to isolate in accordance with government-prescribed directives [and] guidelines does not constitute a form of an illness or disability that warrants coverage under a collective agreement,” says Irv Kleiner, partner employment and labour group at Torkin Manes in Toronto, in talking to Canadian HR Reporter.
“The [agreement] has no reference to illness and disability and within the meaning of the collective agreement, a requirement to isolate does not constitute a form of illness or disability.”
