Some McGillians have shared concerns about the impact of the government’s ruling on postdocs – specifically regarding the classification of some McGill postdocs as employees, and the payroll deductions and employer fees that this classification entails. McGill shares many of these concerns. And while we must abide by provincial law and apply these changes, we hope to at least clarify the situation as best we can.
