LEVEL UP | Taking Care of Yourself During COVID-19

Event Details

Join us ONLINE to learn about legal issues for employees due to COVID-19, and how to boost your immunity naturally. *Pay What You Can*

About this Event:

Now more than ever it is so important that we take care of ourselves and our careers, so this month we will be discussing what you should know about your rights as an employee, especially during COVID-19 layoffs, as well as learn how to boost your immunity naturally and safely.

BONUS! Learn how to make a multi-purpose, immunity-boosting facial steam to give yourself some much-needed love.

Know your rights! We will be addressing legal questions including:

What options do you have as an employee that has been laid off because of COVID-19?
What should you know about your rights regarding a layoff, termination, severance, and benefits?
What support can individuals get from the government if they lose their job or have their hours reduced because of COVID-19?
What should you know about all of that legal stuff when reviewing a contract, signing a job offer, and working for a new employer?
What should you know about your general rights as an employee and how you should be treated from an employer and fellow colleagues?


How can one boost their immunity to further protect themselves from COVID-19?


This event will be ONLINE – a link to join the online panel will be sent out to all attendees beforehand.
