LCP Mandatory Employment Contract

Posted in Live In Caregiver Work Permit

LCP Mandatory Employment

An employment contract between employer and live-in caregiver, outlining the terms and conditions of employment, is a legal requirement of the LCP and must be provided as part of an application for a new work permit or a work permit renewal under the program. The employment contract must be signed by both the employer and the live-in caregiver.

The live-in caregiver position being offered must be full-time and all terms and conditions outlined in the employment contract must, by law, abide by provincial/territorial employment standards and labour laws. Housework, cleaning or other similar domestic duties, such as food preparation, may be allowable as a small proportion of the overall duties, and when clearly related to the duties of caring for the individual(s), however cannot be the primary duty.

The signed written employment contract between live-in caregivers and their employers must demonstrate that LCP requirements are met by including a description of:

  • Mandatory employer-paid benefits, including:
  • Transportation to the location of work in Canada
  • Medical insurance coverage provided from the date of the live-in caregiver's arrival until he or she is eligible for provincial health insurance
  • Workplace safety insurance coverage for the duration of employment
  • All recruitment fees, including any amounts payable to a third-party recruiter or agents hired by the employer that would otherwise have been charged to the live-in caregiver
  • Job duties which clearly demonstrate that the employee's primary duty will be live-in caregiving
  • Hours of work
  • Wages
  • Accommodation arrangements (including, where applicable, room and board)
  • Holiday and sick leave entitlements
  • Termination and resignation terms.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
