Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
basic concepts qualifying period extension illness
Summary:

The claimant was short 60 hours to qualify for maternity benefits because she had reduced her work schedule to the equivalent of 2 weeks per month due to pregnancy related illness. The burden of proof was on the claimant to prove that throughout some weeks in her qualifying period she was incapable of work because of illness or pregnancy. Certainly one is not pregnant only in alternate weeks and it stretches the imagination to accept that illness associated with one's pregnancy alternates from work week to work week.

Summary:

Claimant had 15 weeks of insurable employment to qualify while 26 weeks were needed. Requested an extension of his qualifying period alleging that he was on "economic quarantine" when being unable to obtain or retain employment because of the vindictive actions of his former employer and that should be associated to the term "quarantine" found in the legislation. Contention rejected by Umpire who concluded that the word "quarantine" found in the Act is being used as an cognate to illness or injury. The FCA summarily dismissed the claimant's request for review.
