    As an employer can I institute a travel policy that prevents my employees from traveling outside of Canada?

    The Government of Canada is currently recommending that Canadians avoid all non-essential travel outside of Canada to reduce the spread of COVID-19, and are recommending that anyone who does travel self-isolates for 14 days upon their return. As an employer, you can develop a policy that strongly recommends that employees avoid traveling at this time, and which imposes a positive duty on employees to report any travel to the employer.

    The policy can also make it clear to employees that, if they choose to travel, they will be required to remain at home for 14 days after they return and, if remote work is not available, that this will be unpaid leave.

    You can take legal advice before implementing the policy.
