The LMO is only good for the employer who applied for it. Your work permit is only good for that employer

As Auld Yin quite rightly says. Your additional work hours paid at a standard rate have no bearing on your LMO or your wish to have that LMO transferred to a new company.

So far as breaching the LMO itself, Your present company. will find themselves in very hot water and fined heavily if indeed they are found to be breaching the terms of the LMO. However, this would have no effect on your circumstances.

Your only recourse so far as a new employer is concerned, is to speak with them and ask that they apply for an LMO on your behalf. If they are prepared to do this for you then, when the paperwork comes through, you will be able to legally work for the new company. Until then, you are stuck with your situation

Well tell/show it to the employer. Are you prepared to state that you will contact the
Labour Relations of the Provincial Government if not paid what's entitled to you? I suspect that either way you'll be terminated.
