Understanding COVID-era labour law with Joseph Cohen-Lyons

The COVID-era has brought with it not only questions around consumer behavioural changes and retail strategy deep-dives but also raised new questions around labour practices and labour law: Can we mandate COVID testing in the workplace, what must we accommodate, can we field a mandatory employee survey, and the big one, can we require vaccines in our business?

Joseph Cohen-Lyons is a lawyer in the employment and labour law group with Norton Rose Fulbright, a global law firm with more than 3,700 employees based in Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Africa.

In this exclusive interview, Joseph and Michael LeBlanc discuss the state of labour law in the COVID-era and try to answer the tough questions we all have regarding labour law at this unprecedented moment in time.
