Employment Insurance

23 October 2016

Morally, work should be a right. In reality, few people go their whole working lives without resorting to employment insurance.

Loss of contracts, loss of customers, company restructuring resulting in layoffs– temporary when lucky but too often permanent. While looking for another job, you still need to buy groceries.

In the vast majority of cases, a simple application is all you need to receive EI benefits. But for whatever reason, there are often problems and benefits can be denied.

You can challenge such a decision employment insurance. First, seek review of the decision to employment insurance and thereafter, it is possible to appeal this decision to the General Division of the Court of social security.
