You keep your claim ongoing if you are not guaranteed full time work. Report your hours and earnings on your bi-weekly reports. You just won't receive money if your income for that week was more than double your EI entitlement amount, as half of whatever you make is taken off your EI for the week.OutsideYourWorld wrote: ↑Oct 17th, 2017 1:00 amI do seasonal forestry work. Jobs go month to month, and for october at LEAST, i'm out of work. Next month could very well be back on the job. if I apply for EI for this month, then stop my claims after I begin work, can I, for example, start claiming benefits again come January if there is again no work until the season begins again in May? I know benefits run for about a year, is that when they reset, or?
I can't seem to find solid answers...
e.g. If you make more than $1000, and you're normally entitled to 500/week EI, then you don't get EI.
If you make $800, and you're normally entitled to 500/week EI, then you would receive of 500-400
That way if you have no work or are underemployed for a certain week, then you can get EI.
After one year after your layoff then your current EI claim would be over. However, if you have an interruption of earnings of 7 days, your employer is legally required to issue a ROE specifying the shortage of work (i.e. layoff). Then once your first layoff is over, then another one starts if you have another layoff slip in queue.
