If the live-in caregiver is still employed with the same employer and any of the above documents are not available, they may provide a statutory declaration stating the terms and conditions of their most recent employment.

Live-in caregivers who select to have their application assessed against the hours -based calculation of the employment requirement (total of 3,900 hours within a minimum of 22 months) must also include timesheets signed by their current and previous employer(s) clearly indicating the date and number of hours worked for all overtime hours hours claimed (maximum of 390 overtime hours allowed) and the Live-in Caregiver – Employer Declaration of Hours Worked (IMM 5634) completed and signed by their current and previous employer(s).
