Joint responsibility for Ontario employers and recruiters!

Date and time

2014.10.13, 7:15 PM

Description

We want Ontario Bill 18 amended so that it:

Eliminates any provision or potential provision under which employers “recover” recruitment or employment costs from migrant workers;
Gives migrant workers at least five years to file complaints so that they can seek justice after their contracts have finished;
Makes the government responsible for proactively enforcing the law and eliminates the self-reporting provisions of the Bill;
Allows third-party complaints and fast-track investigations where reprisals are alleged;
Extends joint responsibility to both employers and recruiters for any exploitative, migrant worker recruitment practice;
Licenses recruiters and registers employers and requires recruiters to provide a guaranteed security deposit from which migrant workers can be compensated when recruiters violate laws.
