Employment Insurance - End of Contract: Am I eligible?
My contract has now expired. Unfortunately, owing to staffing concerns due to a merger, the company could not keep me on board. I am now unemployed.
Today I got my Record of Employment (ROE) mailed to me from my employer. Under Section 16 (Reason for issuing this ROE) the reason cited is "E" with comment "Quit / Return to school". This is erroneous - I didn't quit on my own terms and I'm not going back to school. I'm concerned that this will make me ineligible for EI while I seek another job.
Should I go back to the employer and have them redo the ROE? I intend to cite the Service Canada site:

I believe under these terms I should qualify for EI?"Helpful hint: If the reason for issuing the ROE is an end of contract, an end of season, a temporary shutdown of operations or any other reason equivalent to a "shortage of work", indicate reason code "A". Do not include these comments in Block 18."
