All about Employment Insurance
For service Canada E.I. reporting, how many hours are elementary occasional teachers claiming for a full day? Claim 8 hours.
When should applications be submitted? Applications must be submitted within 2 weeks of the end of your employment.
Can a person in an LTO apply for EI over Christmas and March break? There have been different responses to this from different service Canada employees. The fact that your position may be terminated within 5 days’ notice would make LTOs casual employees. However, some applicants have been requested to repay funds received through EI if the position continues throughout the whole year.
How do I get my ROE? ROEs are automatically sent out at the end of the school year. However, if you are starting a new claim over Christmas or March Break, you will have to apply for one. A new ROE must be requested via an email to the Payroll department. We have verified with Service Canada that no ROE is required if you are reactivating an old claim.
Who is the person to contact in order to clarify my hours worked if E.I. decides to investigate my claim? You are required to keep track of your own hours for regular claims. The school board is only to be contacted if an investigation occurs. Please contact the current HR OT Payroll clerk. As of January 2017 this is Kelsey Mather.
