On April 29, 2021, the Ontario Government will introduce the COVID-19 Putting Workers First Act, which would require employers to provide employees with up to three days of paid leave because of certain reasons related to COVID-19.

If the legislation is passed, employers will be required to pay employees up to $200 a day for up to three days. The three days would not need to be taken consecutively.
