No - that's what they want - they want you to be working. You are still entitled to EI program. In that case whatever you make there, they'll take 1/2 of that off your entitled EI benefit amounts.jasperdaimaou wrote: ↑Oct 6th, 2017 9:04 amHi FirstGear,
Thank you for your input and explanation.
Also I'm just thinking... would it look suspicious if I take some minimum wage full-time job at the moment in order to get out of the benefits, then quit it once it's time for that other job? I guess I just really want that job that starts later without abusing the EI system, and not be stuck doing something else.
So suppose you make 600/week there, and your EI amount is 520/week, then you will only get 220 of EI for that week
Just make sure you keep your EI claim open and report your hours and earnings on the bi-weekly reports.
It's probably a good idea even to take the min. wage job for networking purposes. You never know if you'll run into someone who knows a somebody who refers you to a better job.
