“Employers face additional costs with new foreign worker rules” by Sarah Dobson, Canadian HR Reporter

Canadian HR Reporter quotes Vancouver lawyer Daniel Lee in an article on new foreign worker rules.

“The government is understanding that a lot of temporary foreign workers are not receiving the equal level of protections as Canadian citizens and Canadian permanent residents,” says Daniel Lee, associate at Fasken in Vancouver.

This is because they only have temporary status in Canada, so many are afraid of reporting non-compliant employers.

“They’re afraid that they might lose their job and, therefore, they would need to leave Canada or to find a job elsewhere, and to find a job elsewhere, it could be challenging,” he says, adding that many workers are also low-skilled and don’t know their employment rights.
