week of unemployment friends or relatives
Summary:

One of the main questions at issue was precisely whether or not the work performed by claimant was really benevolent, i.e. whether he really did not expect to receive any pecuniary advantage. Not considered work under ss. 10(1) if work is really benevolent in nature. Claimant worked 50 hours a week in mother's snack bar. Mother and claimant's girlfriend also worked there. A claimant really providing benevolent services does not work within the meaning of ss. 10(1).

Decision 13802A Full Text of Decision 13802A

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
week of unemployment friends or relatives
Summary:

In order to determine whether claimant was employed at his son's garage, one must examine the relationship between the parties to determine if there existed an employer-employee relationship out of which the person who provided the services could expectsome kind of remuneration. No employer-employee relationship between father and son in the normal sense. A casual arrangement whereby the father would from time to time at his sole discretion and without any remuneration lend a hand at the garage, is not employment. As in CUB 11084, there being no evidence of any remuneration, direct or indirect, immediate or eventual, claimant cannot be deemed to have been working for his son during the relevant periods. No indirect remuneration despite claimant's wife's shares inthe business. It is significant that no one is hired to replace claimant when he is not available to help out at his son's garage because that fact tends to corroborate claimant's evidence that all the time he spends at the garage is not spent working there.

Decision A-0341.79 Full Text of Decision A-0341.79

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
week of unemployment friends or relatives
Summary:

The insured worked a normal week in her brothers' business. No present or future earnings or other benefits. She suffered from depression and wanted to keep busy. The Umpire did not err in law by saying that there was no contract of service. It seems to us that a person can perform work for someone else within the meaning of s. 21 even if she does not receive earnings if, moreover, there is a relationship comparable to the relationship that results from a contract of service.
