Overview

“Proposed Ontario Bill Shakes Up Employment Laws” by Roy Maurer, Society For Human Resource Management

Read the article

“The Employment Protection for Foreign Nationals Act would apply not just to ‘live-in caregivers and others’ but to all temporary foreign workers in Ontario. This would impact not only foreign guest workers, but employers and recruiters also, said Andrew Bratt, an attorney in the Toronto office of Fasken Martineau. According to Bratt, if the bill is enacted, foreign nationals who are temporarily employed in Ontario would be protected from charges for services or costs incurred by an employer or recruiter unless legally prescribed; from property, passport or work permit retention by an employer or recruiter; and from any reprisals for exercising legal rights.”
