Never said or thought of the EI system as a venture capital fund but thanks for your perception of someone you assume is trying to take advantage of the system. I'm looking for facts, not judgement.b166er1337 wrote: ↑May 2nd, 2016 11:20 amThis is incorrect. If you quit without just cause your claim will be disqualified and you won't receive any additional benefits. The front counter agent you talked to is likely not trained in contentious issues.
Awesome! Good to know that the untrained professionals are giving accurate and conflicting info.
Quitting to start your own business is just cause, but you won't qualify for EI unless your business fail completely and you decide to look for other jobs instead. EI is not a venture capital to fund your start up.
Is it my imagination or do the ex SC experts in the field appear a bit abrasive and look at the issues as black OR white?
Thanks to all who commented and replied but I'll just go through the process, fill in the form "QUIT (VOLUNTARY SEPARATION FROM EMPLOYMENT" and see what transpires as there have been favorable decisions to workers under the Voluntarily Leaving.
