Kathmandu, October 29
Two Nepalis and two Filipinos have filed a case against a Canadian company claiming the company collected recruitment fees from them, but did not give the proposed jobs.
A British Columbia Court recently approved registration of the lawsuit against Mac’s Convenience Stores and three immigration consulting firms.
Prakash Bashyal and Bishnu Khadka among four have filed the case against Mac’s Convenience Stores Inc., Overseas Immigration Services Inc., Overseas Career and Consulting Services Ltd., and Trident Immigration Services Ltd.
Mac’s and the consulting firms, however, say the job positions were not guaranteed and the fees were not for job placement but for assistance with the immigration and settlement process.
According to the statement of claim, the petitioners, who were working in Dubai, paid around $8,000 in fees in exchange for the promise of a job in Canada.
