Summary:

The claimant filed a claim for sickness benefits and informed the Commission that she had gone to the hospital on October 30, 2009, returned to work on November 6 and 7 and received sick leave on November 2, 3 and 4. The Commission determined that the claimant was not entitled to a waiver of the waiting period because her time off work due to sickness did not start until November 7 because the last days paid, that is, November 6 and 7, had been for work. The appeal by the Commission is allowed by the Umpire.

Summary:

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
basic concepts waiting period Waiving - Apprentice
Summary:

The issue is whether paragraph 39.1(b) of the EI Regulations can apply to waive the waiting period of the claimant, an apprentice, where his initial separation from employment was due to work shortage as opposed to the requirement to attend upon proper referral an apprenticeship program. The Court dismissed the Commission's appeal concluding that the claimant stopped working on January 4, 2005, the date work resumed at the employer's premises and the date the apprentice program began, as opposed to December 24, 2005, the date of the general lay-off for the holiday period. Influencing factors for the Court were: the claimant, unlike his classmates would have had to serve a waiting period between December 26, 2004 and January 8, 2005 and the claimant did not apply for benefits until the start of his course, January 4, 2005. See particular Commission guidance on this case. Also see similar cases, CUBs 67214, 66592 and 64468.
