Subject: Today's announcement regarding restaurants
As many of you may have already heard, the Premier announced this afternoon that restaurants are to move to take-out only beginning Thursday. HERE is the link to the press conference.
I realize this announcement may mean that you need to make the difficult decision to lay-off staff or reduce staff's hours. Here are some resources that may be helpful:
- EI's Work-Sharing Program (which can supplement a worker’s income when employers have cut hours due to a downturn): https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/work-sharing.html
- The federal government is "looking at means to help workers that do not qualify for EI”. Once we know more about these changes or any other applicable government relief programs, we will send the information by email.
I know this is a very burdensome time for all of you and I'm so sorry that you are in this difficult position. Please reach out if I can help by email or phone 902-430-2377.
Take care, Michelle
