In this webinar we will discuss Open Work Permits for Vulnerable Workers; who is eligible? What documentation is needed to apply? What is abuse? We will discuss and share information on what to do if workers cannot stay in their current job during COVID-19. We will hear from a worker who has recently gone through the process of successfully applying for an open work permit.
