basic concepts qualifying period extension applicability
Summary:

Last day worked: 21-08-98. Benefit period would have been established effective 23-08-98 if the claimant had accumulated the necessary number of insurable hours. Claimant had only 544 hours, whereas 560 hours were needed. Claimant asked to have his benefit period start one week earlier (week of interruption of earnings), to have his qualifying period extended by a week, and to allow him to benefit from the insurable hours accumulated during his last week of work. Request denied by the Commission, but allowed by the Umpire who was of the opinion that an extension would favour the claimant and the last part should not be cut off.The Court allowed the Commission's request for a judicial review after the claimant gave his consent.
