Getting hired in Canada—Know your rights

You must know that a Canadian employer needs to abide by certain rules and obligations with regard to hiring foreign workers

Employment terms compliance—Is your employer following rules?—When getting hired by an employer in Canada, you need to know whether the employer is following rules for doing so.

These rules are for hiring temporary foreign workers in Canada. So, as per rules, an employer needs to report about any hike in salary as well as any increase or decrease in the number of hours worked.

Are you getting hired by an employer having authority to do so?—While getting hired in Canada, you need to assure that the employer must have proper authority from the Canada government for hiring a temporary foreign worker.

Yes, that’s true. As per the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, any employer who does not have the required authority to work in Canada cannot hire any foreigner to work in Canada.

Canada government says any employer needs to have proper authority for hiring foreign workers to work in Canada.

And the duty of the employer is to ensure that the foreign worker getting recruited by him must have valid status for working in Canada. This needs to be done before offering an employment to any foreign worker, as per Canada rules.

Misrepresenting facts or information?—Be wary—If any employer wanting to hire any foreign worker in Canada is found to be guilty of misrepresenting any facts or information, he or she should be ready to face consequences.

What are the consequences of doing so?—Well, any employer not abiding by Canada employment rules must face consequences of doing so.

As per the rules, any employer making any request for hiring a temporary foreign worker is going to face rejection of such request if he is found to be guilty of non-compliance with rules.

Further, he may get prohibition for hiring any other temporary foreigners for working in Canada for a period of as much as two years.

And his name will be included in the list of employers who are ineligible for hiring foreigners to work in Canada in the CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) official website. Moreover, he or she will have to pay a fine ranging between Canadian dollars 50,000 and Canadian dollars 100,000 along with an imprisonment of two to five years duration.
