Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
penalties record of employment
Summary:

The Commission determined that the claimant had filed a false Record of Employment. This resulted in the cancellation of the claim, an overpayment, a penalty and a violation. The FCA ruled that the evidence which was before the BOR and the Umpire supported the factual finding that the claimant was never employed by the Owner of the ROE. The critical finding of fact was reasonable.

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
penalties record of employment
Summary:

This is the strike out of an Employer’s Notice of Application on the dismissal of application T-1706-13 respecting the imposition of a penalty for issuing two fraudulent records of employment. Rather than pursuing his right to have the Commission reconsider the imposition of this penalty, on the basis permitted by section 112 and subsequently by section 113 of the Act (for appeal on to SST), the employer filed the Application with the Federal Court. FCA decided that the failure to follow the Act’s recourse procedures provides a complete justification for the dismissal of the FCA application.

summary
Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
penalties record of employment
Summary:

The claimant submitted various Records of Employment. One from a management group which Canada Revenue Agency determined was not insurable employment. The claimant had not accumulated the minimum number of hours of insurable employment to establish a benefit period. The Commission cancelled the benefit period which led to an overpayment of $3,480.00. The Commission determined that the claimant had knowingly provided a false Record of Employment and imposed a non-monetary penalty. The Commission also determined that the claimant had knowingly made false or misleading statements when completing his report cards and it imposed a penalty of $2,891.00 and issued a notice of violation. The claimant's appeal was dismissed and the Commission's decision is upheld.

summary
Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
penalties record of employment
Summary:

Maternity and parental benefits were paid to the claimant. The Commission came to the conclusion that the benefits should not have been paid as the claimant did not accumulate the required amount of insurable hours and assessed an overpayment of $11,300. In addition, a penalty and a notice of violation were also imposed upon the claimant. The Commission cancelled the benefit period. The claimant by her own admission only worked part-time but filed a claim with a record of employment that indicated full time employment and sufficient hours worked and earnings made to qualify for benefits. The claimant's husband also worked for the same employer and it appears that hours and earnings were shared in order to falsify the claimant's ROE. The claimant's appeal to the Umpire is dismissed and the decision form the BOR is maintained.

summary
Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
penalties record of employment
Summary:

This CUB is related to 100 other CUBs between 68945 and 69045 and CUB 67714A, some claimant appeals, some Commission appeals - CUB 68945 is the same decision for all. The cases all involve a system of banking time or accumulating hours between 1992 and 1997 by the employer, Pavages Continental, and certain employees. The employer pleaded guilty to a number of charges in Quebec Provincial Court and was fined $ 80,000. Claimants were subject to retroactive allocations of earnings and recalculations of their benefit rates based on rulings of the Canada Revenue Agency, resulting in overpayments and penalties imposed for false or misleading statements. The Umpire limited the appeals to two issues: writing off of the overpayments and the quantum of the penalties imposed. For some cases, the Umpire confirmed the Board's decisions by saying: "state of health being a factor that must be taken into consideration in determining whether the Commission exercised its discretionary authority judicially. In other cases, the Umpire found it impossible to find that the Board acted appropriately by ruling that the Commission did not exercise its discretionary authority judicially - the Board should have identified the applicable mitigating circumstances in support of its intervention in each case - if it was a financial issue, it should have set out in detail all the relevant evidence for its intervention. For other cases, the Umpire allowed the Commission's appeals and rescinded the Boards' decision with respect to the reduction or cancellation of the penalty.

Summary:

See similar cases: CUBs 68209 and 68812. See CUB 67582 for the employer's (Dewan Enterprises) denied appeal against penalties.
