Canada faces lawsuit over closed work permit terms

The Government of Canada faces a class-action lawsuit for violating the Charter Rights of migrant domestic and farm workers. The case aims to challenge the immigration regulations restricting workers' rights to change employers. The Association for the Rights of Household and Farm Workers (DTMF) filed the case on behalf of closed work permit holders to end the system that treats workers as the property of their employers. The lawsuit alleges that the employer-tying measures are discriminatory based on race, national origin, and colour. Migrant workers with closed work permits face restrictions on their professional flexibility. If they lose their employment, they also lose their legal status to work in Canada until they find another employer with authorization to hire foreign workers. #work_permits, #work_in_Canada, #foreign_workers, #DTMF https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/montreal-based-workers-rights-group-files-class-action-against-closed-work-permits-1.6969241#:~:text=A%20Montreal-based%20workers%27%20rights%20group%20has%20filed%20an,the%20Rights%20of%20Household%20and%20Farm%20Workers%20%28DTMF%29. https://ca.news.yahoo.com/montreal-based-workers-rights-group-171342081.html
