I live in Toronto, and I never applied for E I before. I was working 35 hours a week since sept 7,2011 and I was laid off on march 28, 2012. I was only working through a temp agency, is that enough hours to qualify for E.I?
I also worked part time at another agency for a month from July 11, 2011 to august 12, 2011
Those were the two employment I submitted on my application, but I have to send in MY ROE and I still haven’t been able to do so, but I wont be receiving payment until I submitted the ROE , am I correct?
One last issue is that I also worked as a census enumerator starting May 30, 2011, and I resigned from the position on August 7, 2011 because there were hardly any more work to be done.
The census collection period officially ended on August 23, 2012. By the time I resigned on August 7, 2012 , the remaining work is really convincing people who have yet to complete the voluntary census long form to complete it despite previous refusals
I didn’t include my position as a census enumerator because I resigned on my own, but in reality, I really felt it was because I couldn’t get anymore work done as nobody was willing to fill out their census and I couldn’t justify my work hours if I cant return any completed census form to the office so I was “forced” to quit.
My question is, can I still include my work as a census enumerator even though I submitted the application already ? and will they count that job since I wasn’t fired technically?
Another more problematic issue, which you might not have even experienced is that I am a pre op transsexual and my driver license is F , but I was advised that there is a gender marker on my social insurance card, and its M because the federal government wouldn’t legally change the birth gender of a person until after a sex reassignment surgery.
I didn’t really even want to apply for E.I as a male, but I did it anyways. I will apply E.I as a cat if I have to, because I feel that I did pay into my employment insurance and I should be getting it since I got laid off.
My concern is , when the E.I people check if I am looking for a job or what not, they are going to address me as a mister, but I work as a female and very few people even would know about my birth gender, so I am sensing that there will be some problems ahead if the E.I people “out” me as transgender to prospective employers, or previous employers, which would not be good for me, but I guess theres nothing I could do?
Do you know if the E.I people are sensitive to this issue at all or will I have to explain I am a transgender female everytime I tried to get my payment or whatnot? *SIGH*
I am very stressed, sorry.
