Resources to help Bombardier employees temporarily laid off
Gradual Resumption of Manufacturing Operations in Canada
Bombardier Aviation will plan a return-to-work process that will bring teams
back over time, and on a staggered-shift pattern. For some, this will mean a
prompt return to work, in full alignment with previously communicated
temporary layoff end dates. In other cases, return-to-work dates will occur
later as these unprecedented circumstances call for extreme caution and
alignment with local government directives. Employees will be directly
contacted by their supervisor to inform them of their return-to-work date.
Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS)
Bombardier will apply the CEWS to enhance the compensation structure
for team members on temporary layoff in Ontario and Quebec. More
information on the program’s specific eligibility criteria, duration and
payment process are available through your immediate supervisor and
the Human Resources team.
