Hello,


Just for curiosity, is there any way to find out through public/shared information if the company I work for is getting tax benefits or any other type of benefit for hiring me as an immigrant? I am under permanent residency for 3 years now and they hired me last year. If yes, how does that work for them?


The reason I ask is because it is a small company and there is not much stuff for me to do that justifies my employment, besides it is not a very welcome environment for an immigrant like me.


Thank you.

Does your employer own the laptop and simply allow you to use it for work purposes? Or do they gift it to you and allow you personal use as well? The ownership structure plays a significant role in whether the employer receives a tax benefit.
