Well, in theory, if the only ROE issued is the one from the current employer with reason code K - other, then there is nothing to worry about. As long as the new employer doesn't issue a ROE, Service Canada will not know you changed job.Mindlesstrance wrote: ↑Aug 26th, 2017 3:32 pmHi. I am currently receiving EI and managed to find part time work. The owners of the company I've been working for have decided to get out of the business. Because the company in question was a franchised one, another company came in and offered all employees the chance to continue working there on the same schedule and at the same pay rate.
While all of this was happening it's been very stressful. Due to the uncertainty of whether I'd even have a job anymore I managed to find another part time job. After working at this new job it's offering me slightly more hours than the previous one.
Will the fact I got another part time job affect me getting my EI payments? The owners that shut their company down issued me an ROE today and the reason for leaving is "K - other. Business changed hands"
Do I need to call anyone or can this be dealt with online when I file my report next week? I believe there's a question asking if I no longer work for an employer but not sure if answering yes gives me the ability to explain why. If I can explain why online then will that delay any payment because I assume someone has to manually verify it?
The correct action is obviously to report you quit the job after finding the other one. Your payment will be suspended while Service Canada review the circumstances. So be prepared to be without EI benefits for a few weeks. And yes someone will have to manually review the reasons for quitting.
