This is not true unless the policy is location dependent (I guess EI is federal so shouldn't). Anyways, I'm in Alberta and on reduced hours like most companies these days. When I enquired, I was told that unless the employer issues a record of employment you cannot claim EI. If the employer calls you even for 1 or 2 hours a week, he is considered still trying his best to avoid layoff and find work for the employee. If we can apply for EI when we have no pay for 7 consecutive days, then please post a link or something that endorses this statement.
Guys, if you don’t actually know the answer to something please keep it to yourself.
Understandably, this is create a lot of confusion for people.
