Judicial Review Dismissed  No Commission  -

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
antedate  health reasons 


The claimant filed a claim for benefits on April 17, 2012 and requested that his claim be antedated to June 2007. The Commission refused the claimant’s request on the basis that he had not shown good cause for his delay in applying for EI benefits. The Umpire dismissed the Commission’s appeal, relying on medical evidence which established that the claimant suffered from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. The Umpire concluded that the claimant’s delay in filing his claim had resulted from his mental illness. The FCA ruled that there is no need to review all of the existing jurisprudence but that reasonable analysis suffice to come to acceptable outcomes.
