With the recent news about foreign workers to replace RBC employees, Daniel Lublin, Toronto Employment Lawyer was asked by The Toronto Star for his opinion. The whole article can be read in the Star, including Mr. Lublin’s quote:
Despite a promise by RBC to identify positions for affected staff within the organization, employment lawyer Daniel Lublin, who has been approached by a couple of the affected employees, remains doubtful of the prospects.
“Most banks will say that they’ll attempt to find you a job internally. Very few people find comparable employment within the employer. Most of them are ultimately terminated,” he told the Star.
“The reality is the people I met with are older, extraordinarily long-term employees, only a few years away from retirement, who are unlikely to ever find re-employment in the Canadian marketplace.”
