Q&A on Changes to Some Postdocs' Status

News

Originally posted on December 9, 2016

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.

To that end, we’ve created a Q&A that addresses many of the questions we’ve received so far. We invite you to consult this page frequently; we will update it as more inquiries are received.

Again, we understand that these changes will constitute a hardship for many McGillians. We wish this were not the case, and we will work to provide you with as much information as we can. Should you have questions that are not addressed in the Q&A, we invite you to reach out to the HR Shared Services team at 514-398-HRHR (4747) or hr [dot] hr [at] mcgill [dot] ca.
