Residency Status: Rights Ruling and Mcgill University
residency status: The offer was later rescinded after the company learned Haseeb did not have permanent status in Canada though he was eligible for a three-year postgraduate work permit to stay in the country, according to Toronto Star. Muhammad Taimoor Haseeb, a McGill University engineering grad, said he hopes a human rights ruling that bars employers from discriminating against job applicants based on their residency status, will benefit other jobseekers. The decision follows a complaint from Muhammad Taimoor Haseeb, a former international student at McGill University who was offered a position as an engineer in Sarnia by Imperial Oil in 2014. RANA MOGHEES / PHOTO The case is believed to be the first employment-related complaint in Canada related to citizenship and could have far-reaching implications for employers who turn down applicants based on residency status. We are very pleased with the tribunal decision. The decision could also have an impact on job-seekers with temporary status in securing employment as postgraduate work experience has become an increasingly important stepping stone for permanent residency in Canada.
