basic concepts benefit periods cancellation
Summary:

The claimant did not meet the criteria to be considered a Long Tenured Worker and therefore was not eligible to receive additional weeks of benefits pursuant to subsection 12(2.1) of the Employment Insurance Act (the Act). The claimant requested a reconsideration, to have the file date pushed forward in time to qualify for LTW, again, this was denied. The claimant then requested the file to be cancelled. The jurisprudence clearly provides that when a benefit period has been established and benefits have already been paid, the Commission cannot cancel the benefit period. The claimants appeal is dismissed.

basic concepts benefit periods cancellation
Summary:

A new benefit period could have been established on February 12, 2006 but the claimant only had 574 hours of insurable employment - he needed 595 hours. His request to cancel his renewal claim of Octobre 2005 in order to establish a new benefit period from October 16, 2005 was refused by the Commission but granted by the Board of Referees. The claimant would only have needed 525 hours of insurable employment to establish a benefit period in October. "The Commission could not know how a change in the unemployment rate would affect the determination of the number of insurable hours required by the claimant to qualify for benefits or the number of benefit weeks to which a person is entitled."

summary
Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
basic concepts benefit periods cancellation
Summary:

The Board made an error. It was not possible to cancel the benefits paid for the weeks from April 24 to May 21, 2005 retroactively, thereby creating an overpayment, and then establish an initial benefit period effective August 21, 2005. The Commission had also looked at the possibility of terminating the first benefit period and establishing a new one, but this was not possible, because the claimant had to have accumulated 600 hours of insurable employment since March 18, 2005, and since she did not return to work until May 24, 2005, she had accumulated only 552 hours. She thus qualified for only 15 weeks of maternity benefits, followed by 17 weeks of parental benefits.

summary
Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
basic concepts benefit periods cancellation
Summary:

Claimant asked that his benefit period be cancelled despite payment of one week of benefits, so that he could benefit from the new regulatory amendments. This would allow him to receive 34 weeks of benefits instead of 22 weeks. Claimant argued that he had not really started receiving benefits since, before requesting the cancellation, he had not cashed his first EI cheque. Argument dismissed. That he had not cashed his cheque does not change the application of the Act, which states "benefits (that) were paid or payable".

The failure of the Commission to inform the claimant of the possibility of cancellation of a claim to the possible advantage of a claimant is not a ground for appeal in the absence of some other negligence. CUB 11014 referred to.

UI paid for 4 weeks at $38. When the cheques were received is irrelevant as is the question of whether he ever cashed them. Once the benefit period was established and a benefit became payable, there can be no turning back even if he chose not to acceptthe payment.

Summary:
