Important info about Employment Insurance claims

To all members who are planning on going on Employment Insurance (EI) for the Summer:

1) How to request a Record of Employment [ROE].

Although it is hoped that ROE will be automatically generated with Workday, until that is confirmed, please go to the Human Resources website:

https://brocku.ca/human-resources/

Once there, click the Faculty & Staff tab. From there, select Payroll. You will be prompted to the Sharepoint site. On the right hand side of the screen, there is a Record of Employment Request Form. Fill it out as soon as your contract ends, and submit it.

2) When to expect that your ROE will be submitted*?

Given the changes to our pay with Workday, our final pay has been pushed later into May. Human Resources must submit a ROE five days after the last pay period ends, or 14 days after the last day of work. Given that a lot of our contracts will end on April 30th, the ROE must be submitted by May 15.

According to Service Canada, to qualify for EI, you would need to have worked 665 hours in the last calendar year. For more information, please email chiefsteward@cupe4207.org

*ROE is submitted directly to Service Canada that administers EI
