I am working with an employer from last one and half year. Upon completion of my one year of work experience, I applied my permanent resident application. I have received LMIA for my PR application. Now, my employer stopped paying me and constantly referring that he gave me LMIA benefit for my application. My employer is denying the terms mentioned in LMIA. How can I notify IRCC about my employment situation? Is it appropriate way to solve the problem? Can I change my employer under these conditions?
This situation can be dealt in different ways. First of all, this is not related to IRCC, instead it is a matter of Employment and Social Development Canada. You and your employer both need to obey the terms and conditions outlines in the employment contract you must have signed at the time of LMIA. As a temporary worker, your employment contract should clearly define your: mandatory employer-paid benefits, job duties, hours of work, wages, holiday and sick leave entitlements, and termination and resignation terms. If you think your employer is treating you unfairly, you can call or write to the nearest provincial or territorial labour standards office for help.
Second way, you can notify IRCC about non compliance of your employer but this will result in negative impact on your own application. Upon investigation of case management system, your employer or you can be found ineligible for LMIA. However, under these conditions, you can still change your employer by getting new LMIA from another employer or apply open work permit.
