Hundreds of people hired through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program are launching a class action lawsuit against Mac’s Convenience Stores. They are reporting that they paid thousands of dollars for recruitment fees and signed employment contracts for jobs in Western Mac’s that did not exist. As reported in this CBC News article, three Surrey-based immigration firms are also being sued.
Lawyers at Allevato Quail & Worth have been working on behalf of the migrant workers in this lawsuit, and they are circulating the poster below about their case (pdf available here). Further information on the case, including information sheets in English, Hindi, Nepali, Tagalog, and Chinese (coming soon) are available on this page.
