Right. That's the whole question... whether this constitutes a major change in duties or wages... and my argument is for both. They've taken away my ability to earn commission, and they've turned my job into an office job.OldMarriedGuy wrote: ↑Sep 11th, 2017 11:57 pmIf you quit you're unlikely to get EI as you're creating your own departure from the workforce and it doesn't not sound like your duties and paid are substantially changed or that the wage is significantly decreased.
As per some of the valid reasons for quitting, one is 'your wages were significantly reduced, or there were major changes to your duties'. In my personal opinion this is not the case however it would all depend on who is adjudicating your claim...
In my current role, my main job is to prospect for new clients - it involves approaching strangers, talking to people who are not there for your product/services and requires a different kind of sales approachability than the new position.
The new position (my previous job) is the polar opposite. I rarely, if ever talk to people who aren't already clients... my main job would be to make cold calls in an office, and upsell existing clients who come to me for advice.
