Since 2011, foreign worker program has been evolving significantly. As of December 2015, all employers with foreign workers are under the new compliance regime
– whether you file labour market impact assessment or not. As of Nov 8, the new instructions are announced for all compliance penalties and ban. They are complex and detailed, with broad implication for federal and provincial legal consequences.
Wages, Occupations, and Working (WOW) conditions are something all employers must be in compliance with carefully because each violation will be counted separately. Furthermore, the compliance history and the level of severity cannot play another critical role in increasing potential penalties and ban against the employers.
We highly recommend employers to review their compliance carefully and seriously to avoid any future liabilities.
