Understanding Canadian payroll during the COVID-19 outbreak

Part of keeping Canada moving is the necessity of accurate and timely payroll being completed by the 1.5 million employers that make up this country.

The Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) has prepared a comprehensive overview of payroll requirements during the COVID-19 outbreak, based on questions from the Canadian community.

The document outlines details for layoffs and EI benefits, including:

  • EI and sickness benefits
  • Topping up sickness benefits
  • Daycare expenses and taxable benefits
  • Taxable earnings while in self-isolation
  • Compassionate care leave
  • Notice periods for layoffs during COVID-19

This document can be downloaded from the CPA website.
