federal court  appeal system 


The claimant applied for sickness benefits as he was unable to work due to illness, injury or quarantine. This application was approved, and benefits were paid to the claimant. The Commission terminated the claimant's benefits after 15 weeks, which is the maximum allowable time under the EIA. The claimant requested an additional 25 weeks of payment on the basis that had he applied for regular benefits instead of sickness benefits, he would have received this additional amount. The General Division dismissed the claimant's appeal . The Appeal Division had to determine whether the claimant had made out one of the three grounds listed in subsection 58(1) of the DESDA. The claimant did not make out any of these grounds. There was only one decision that the Appeal Division could have reached, given the issue appealed, and the 15 week limitation on sickness benefits .The application for judicial review was dismissed
