Employers seeking to hire a foreign worker by first obtaining a Labour Market Opinion (LMO) must make sure that they use the proper LMO application form.

As of April, new forms were introduced, and from time to time these forms are revised, so it is important to ensure that you are using the latest version that fits the category of worker for whom you are seeking a LMO.

Under the new regime, LMO forms include a declaration that the employer must sign, attesting that the employer will abide by all program requirements and that the employer is not in breach of employment or other legislation that regulates the occupation in question. The form also contains a declaration asking whether the company has provided substantially the same wages, working conditions and occupation as those described in the job offers to all foreign workers employed in the last two years.
