The Canada Revenue Agency takes on a notorious Toronto bakery
Over the past couple of decades, five workers have died on the job at Fiera Foods, sparking protests, investigations and allegations of a dangerous workplace. But where did those workers come from? Fiera says they are employed through temp agencies, and they have filed for the tax breaks to prove it. But the CRA says those agencies aren't real, and Fiera workers tell stories of showing up at the factory and being put right out onto the floor.
This legal fight sheds light on just how companies can use temp agencies to reduce liability and save money, even when the jobs can be deadly.
