They likely won't call. If I understand correctly, you got laid off and you're afraid you don't qualify anymore, or have you actually found full-time work?swordth wrote: ↑Oct 10th, 2016 9:03 pmFollowing up on this one.clseea wrote: ↑Sep 22nd, 2016 2:15 amNo.swordth wrote: ↑Sep 21st, 2016 11:32 pmLast week Monday I had an interview, this Friday I was laid off (temporarily), and this Wednesday I got a job offer from the company that interviewed me. I applied for EI the day I was laid off.
At the time of the interview, I told them I was employed full time, however I'm unemployed as of the job offer date. I'm worried that if I don't update the company on my employment status, that they will be able to find out that I am unemployed via my EI claim, and they may take that as me misleading them. I also don't want to tell them I'm unemployed now, since I would like the 2 week notice period off (unpaid, still in my EI-no-pay-period), to enjoy some vacation (which I haven't been able to take this year). Scuzzy, I know, but I'm burnt out and need some time.
Is it possible for a prospective company to know that I am on EI/applied for EI?
I filed for EI, accepted the job, and started exactly 2 weeks after filing. I will not earn a single dollar from EI because of the 2 week "deductible" period.
I now want to let Service Canada know that I'm employed, so that they don't mistakenly pay me anything. When I file my weekly report, however, they ask:
"Provide the 10 digit phone number with area code of each employer for whom you worked during the period of this report.".
Well...I don't want to do that - I don't want them to call my new employer, and have them know I was laid off days after I got the job.
So my questions are:
1. If I put down their number, are they going to call?
2. If I simply fail to file anymore EI reports, will that cancel my claim without causing any issues?
3. Any other way to get around this?
If you stop reporting then you will no longer get paid and your claim will get suspended until you call in to restart it.
