Do those of us who were temporarily laid off by CIVEO get to keep our benefits?

How long can they operate at oil under $10?

I also work for civeo myself and still working until the time comes and yes if you r layed off and yes you would still get your bennifits It's based on how many hours you put it Per month That's what I was told If unsure phone Manulife I do hope that helped you Stay safe

It all depends on how long you where working

A question or a suggestion. Most camps have, jack and jill washrooms. Where possible camp owners should make them jack or jill. The camps should be willing to do this. One person per washroom, eliminates one huge chance of spreading a virus. Are they doing it? Can someone bring this up, if not? P.S. I'm retired. I'm thinking of everyone else, who is working their way to that goal.
