Hi, I have a question maybe you can help out with.. tried calling in about 5 times and its so busy you cant even wait on hold.

I work as a chef and the owner has sold a majority share of the restaurant to a person who is gonna now be employed as the owner/manager/chef which means no room for me.. They have offered me a part time salary with part time hours..is this something I need to accept and carry on or could I quit? the reduction in wage and salary would be about half with no title.

hello,

I'm on the tail end of my EI, 22 weeks in still haven't found work, 14 weeks left
my former employer has recently issued me a mid 4 figure cheque for (to which they agreed in a release) is for general damages incurred during the course of my employment

I don't ask to re-visit how EI treats settlements right now as there is quite a bit online already about that, suffice to say at some point in the future they may challenge the general damages characterization but I do have proof of damages incurred

my question is more about reporting:
am I ok for now not reporting the payment on the biweekly report (the question about "any other monies")...my understanding is that I am only obliged to report earnings/income and since general damages payment is not earnings/nor income I would be justified in not reporting it

any insight on this matter would mean more than you know

Sorry if this has been asked previously but difficult to find the exact answer to my question.

If I am on EI and I have temporary full-time work say for 3 weeks. I know during those 3 weeks I won't receive any EI based on the amount I will be earning. If I report my earnings and do not receive any EI, will those 3 weeks be added to the end of my claim? What is the best way for me to handle this situation? Is there a way to suspend the EI for 3 weeks?

Thanks.

Good Day,

I have 18 weeks left till my end of claim date. I am doing some part time work and will have weeks left over. What is the process to access those weeks after the end date?

Thanks in advance.

There is no process. Your claim ends when you're paid out your weeks or you reach the end of your benefit period, whichever happens first

Simply report the hours and earnings, your claim won't be shut off for that short of a period. The weeks are pushed back to be used later, provided you have enough space in your benefit period.

I just completed a 16 month position during which I had perhaps 4 unpaid sick days. My claim was denied because I am 26 hours short of the necessary insurable hours. Do I have any grounds for an appeal in hopes of making those unpaid sick hours insurable?

Thanks for the response. What do you mean by delete the hours and earnings?

Also, I assume this doesn't happen for week where you receive partial EI? Say for example you receive of 2 weeks of exactly 50% of your EI payment because you worked part-time. I don't get an extra week added at the end? Weeks added to the end of a claim within the benefit only happen if no EI is received during a week?

Hi, this is my first post on this site but I have been around for a while lol. I just have a small question to ask. Even though I quit, my claim has been approved. As of Apr 20th it shows 6 weeks of payment being paid out that day(yesterday). Does anyone know when I will actually get this payment because it's not in my bank yet. Thanks.

Nope you either have the hours or you don't. I'm guessing it was a part-time job?

Unpaid sick days aren't insurable so no. But how are you short hours if you worked 16 months? Minor part time job?

They would send you a Cheque if you didn't give your details for direct deposit. And...if it was sent yesterday it definitely wouldn't be there today.
