Employer Infosession II

This session focused on further changes that have been made to the Labour Market Opinion (LMO) application process and the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) including:

  • The recruitment process
  • Legal rights and how they’re changing
  • Risks and obligations of employers

Participants got an up-to-date overview of the many changes to the LMO requirements and application process. They gained insight into the increased minimum advertising and recruitment requirements and exemptions from this requirement, approximate processing times and how to prepare job market impact statements and transition plans for hiring foreign workers. Employer Compliance requirements under the TFWP and consequences of non-compliance were covered.
