Digest of Benefit Entitlement Principles Chapter 25 - Section 8

25.8.0 Incarceration, out of Canada, labour dispute

Work-Sharing benefits are calculated based on the hours of work missed due to the Work-Sharing agreement.Hours of work missed due to a period of incarceration, an absence from Canada or because the workers are engaged in a labour dispute are not missed due to a Work-Sharing agreement. Therefore, Work-Sharing benefits cannot be paid for those hours.

Where the claimant requests that a week during which one of the above exists be processed as a non-Work-Sharing week, or when the conditions of a week of Work-Sharing are not met, the claim is subject to the normal entitlement conditions of the Act and Regulations (Digest 8; Digest 10.11.7).
