TN Status Denied at the Pearson Airport in Toronto

Hi, I’m the HR manager at [REDACTED] and we’re having some difficulties with several TN visas that I would like to ask you about.  We asked some of our Canadian employees to apply for TN visas at Toronto’s Pearson airport and they were all denied and palced on the no fly list because the proposed work was “intermittent.”  We just wanted these people to come work at our US offices for a couple days out of each month.  Does the work have to be full time and for a long duration to qualify for TN?

I would recommend that you never have any of your employees enter through Pearson.  There are other border locations that are much more suitable.  There is no full time or length requirement to qualify for a TN entry and we should be able to get this decision overturned at another border.  Please send me copies of the CBP decisions and we can get this matter taken care of.
