Q

Travelling with Children or Children Travelling Alone
Immigration authorities in most countries are becoming increasingly vigilant when children cross international borders. Whether travelling alone or accompanied by an adult, each child travelling abroad must have an individual valid passport and may also require supporting documentation. Prior to any travel, you should contact the embassy or consulate of all countries the child will be visiting to inquire about entry requirements.

R

Documentation to Facilitate Travel Abroad
The following documents may be required to support the entry of a child to another country: Birth certificate showing the names of both parents. Documents pertaining to custody. If the child is travelling with one parent, a letter signed and dated from the other parent authorizing travel (letter may have to be notarized). If the child is travelling with someone other than the parent, a letter signed and dated from both parents authorizing travel with that person (letter may have to be notarized). If the child is travelling alone, a letter signed and dated from both parents authorizing travel (letter may have to be notarized). If one of the parents is deceased, the death certificate.

S

Documentation and Tips to Facilitate the Return to Canada
The following tips may help to avoid delays when a child is returning to Canada: Make sure you carry proper identification for yourself and any children travelling with you to assist in confirming your legal right or authorization to enter Canada upon your return. If you have custody of the child, carry copies of documents specifying custody rights to the child. If you are not the legal guardian of the child, carry a letter of permission or authorization for you to have custody when entering Canada. When a parent is travelling alone with a child, a letter from the other parent can also facilitate the return of both the parent and the child. The letter should also contain telephone numbers where the parent or legal guardian can be contacted. If you are travelling with a group, ensure you are in the same vehicle as the child you are accompanying when arriving at a border crossing. Have the child memorize a telephone number to call in an emergency.

T

Custody Information

Custody arrangements in Canada may not be recognized in another country. In extreme cases, the child may not be able to leave the country visited. It is recommended that, before leaving on a trip, you check with the embassy or consulate of the country or countries the child will be visiting to determine the documentation that may be required relating to custody of the child. For further information, contact: Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada: Outside Canada: 613-944-6788

If a custody dispute could possibly arise while travelling with the child, you should talk to a lawyer prior to your departure. We suggest you also read the publication International Child Abductions: A Manual for Parents. You may order a copy online or access an online version: Website: travel.gc.ca

For instance, professionals are gaining more say in the running of organizations.

This marked the initial shift in the nature of the employment relationship, and drawing on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs it can be seen that this would help satisfy the two basic tiers of ‘psychological’ and ‘safety’ (Maslow, 1954). This essay aims to critically evaluate the concept of the psychological contract, then analyse why in managing the modern day employment relationship and understanding of the psychological contract is important, relevant theories and academic models will be used where appropriate.
