Digest of Benefit Entitlement Principles Chapter 25 – Section 11

25.11.0 Reconsideration and appeals

Reconsideration of a decision can occur under section 52 of the EIA or section 112 of the EIA.

25.11.1 Reconsideration under section 52 (EIA)

The Commission may reconsider any decision made on a claim for benefits made with respect to Work-Sharing, or any other type of benefits. This type of reconsideration is done under the authority of section 52 of the EIA (see also Digest 17).

Approval or denial of a Work-Sharing agreement is the responsibility of the Program Operations Branch, and is not subject to a formal reconsideration under this section (EIA 24(2)). Any request to reconsider a decision in this respect must be discussed between the employer and the program officer.

25.11.2 Reconsideration under section 112 (EIA)

Generally, a claimant or an employer who disagrees with a decision made by the Commission on a claim for benefits has the right to request a formal reconsideration of that decision (EIA 112).

Approval or denial of a Work-Sharing agreement is the responsibility of the Program Operations Branch, and is not subject to a formal reconsideration under this section (EIA 24(2)). Any request to reconsider a decision in this respect must be discussed between the employer and the program officer.

25.11.3 Appeals to the Social Security Tribunal

Any formal decision made by the Commission pursuant to section 112 of the EIA, regarding individual claims for benefits may be appealed to the Social Security Tribunal (EIA 113).

The approval or denial of a Work-Sharing agreement is not subject to appeal.
