International Travellers

Employers in Ontario are legally required to observe and uphold the Ontario Human Rights Code. On January 28, 2020, the Ontario Human Rights Commission released a statement indicating that:

discriminatory action against any persons or communities because of an association with COVID-19, perceived or otherwise, is prohibited by the Ontario Human Rights Code.

Employees returning from international travel should not be subject to any adverse treatment as this may constitute discrimination under the Code. Workers who believe that they are being discriminated against can contact their union, human resources department and/or the Ontario Human Rights Legal Support Centre at 1-866-625-5179.

Travellers who have completed their mandatory 14 day isolation should not return to work if their work place has been impacted by the Government of Ontario’s emergency orders. Ontario businesses who have questions about the emergency orders can call the province’s toll-free line: 1-888-444-3659.
