I just got laid off from my fulltime job, and I applied for the EI. When I checked online, it says a decision will be made by April 3rd. I am still working as a part time labour (16hrs a week for roughly $168 gross). My part time employer cannot issue my ROE because I am still working with him, and service Canada required that.
So what can I do right now?
How many hours should I work as a part time labour (maximum)?
Your employer can issue it. He is mistaken. Tell him to put K on box 16, and on box 18, states "employee request". You need to submit this ROE or your claim won't be established. Every day you wait means another day of delay.

As for your part time work, there is no restriction in hours. Before yesterday's 2012 budget, a claimant can make 40% of his EI rate without being affected. The allowable earning is raised considerably under the new budget, though I'm not sure when the new rule will kick in.Regardless of whether the employee intends to file a claim for EI benefits, you have to issue an ROE:
- each time an employee experiences an interruption of earnings; or
- when Service Canada requests one.
