COVID-19 Questions

In today’s blog post we are answering question you may have about to COVID-19 and how it relates to Breakaway Staffing, our current employees, and job seekers. Please call our office at (905)564-9671 if you have any additional questions that are not covered below.

Is Breakaway Staffing open?

Yes, we are open. We are considered an essential business by the Ontario government and as such, we will continue to operate as long as possible while working hard to keep everyone safe.

What does this mean for employees of Breakaway?

What that means for our employees is that, unless told otherwise, your job assignment is still operating as usual.

Should I be worried about going to work?

Our clients have assured us that they are following public health organization guidance regarding hygiene practices, social distancing, and preventive cleaning measures to ensure that their facilities are safe for all employees.

As an employee, what can I do if I don’t feel well?

We encourage our employees to take any signs of illness seriously, stay home from work when they feel sick, and seek medical attention as needed.

If you are reporting an absence please call our office and speak to one of our representatives.

Is there any change to Breakaway’s hiring process?

COVID-19 has changed the way most of our local businesses are operating, and Breakaway is no exception. While we are dedicated to keeping our internal employees and our visitors safe, due to the current situation we are not accepting visitors to our office at this time.

If you are picking up a pay cheque you can still come to our office location and we will arrange to give you your cheque without you having to come into the building. However, we do encourage all employees to consider switching to direct deposit to avoid this interaction. Please call our office at (905)564-9671 for more details.

Are you still hiring?

Yes, we are still hiring! With the use of technology our recruiters are able to video interview you and send you the necessary Ministry of Labour documents to complete – and you don’t have to leave your home!
