Can an employer revoked the SPR status of the employee?

Postby fairybubbletea » Sun, 23 Nov 2008 4:28 pm


There is something that I need to ask but then I do not know where to find the answer, so I hope some people can give me their thoughts.

here the story goes:
I get my SPR from converting my Landed Permanent Resident (LPR) since I got a job in one of the leading company (banking, finance, and insurance), so I want to know, if, let say I want to resign from that company then can my current employer revoked my SPR status if I left them? Or is it only the government that hold the power to revoke the PR status?

Thank you...

Once you have your PR, your employer no longer has any say in it at all (unless you are convicted of a criminal offense against the employer then there is a good possibility that the government will cancel it). But under normal circumstances if you resigned they can't do jack! They might try to threaten but there is nothing really that they can do.
