Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
basic concepts  waiting period 


Vacation days, during which claimant was unavailable for work in his waiting period, were properly deducted under ss. 16(1). I do not agree with the Board that the waiting period was extended. The statute does not extend the waiting period. Rather, an amount of money is withheld from benefits.

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
availability for work  absences from home  on vacation 


Clearly, when a claimant is away from his usual place of work, on holiday, and admittedly not available for work, whether or not he is entitled to such a vacation under his union contract, he is unavailable for work under s. 14 during the period he takes as a holiday.
