24.21.0 Reconsideration, amendment of a decision, error correction and appeals

The EI Act contains specific parameters for reconsideration of a previous decision on a claim for benefits. It tells the Commission it must determine the source or the issue prompting the reconsideration and, once determined, apply the legislative rules accordingly. This is also the case with respect to the receipt of an appeal.

The legislation and principles covering the issues of reconsideration, amendment of a decision and error correction are found in Chapter 17 of the Digest and apply to self-employment special benefit claimants in the same manner as for all other claimants.

However, there are no provisions in the EI Legislation to backdate the date an agreement was entered into or the date it was terminated.
