Digest of Benefit Entitlement Principles  Chapter 4 – Week of unemployment

The Digest of Entitlement Principles, (the Digest), contains the principles applied by the Employment Insurance (EI) Commission (the Commission) when providing information and guidance on legislative and regulatory requirements. These principles are also applied when making decisions on claims for EI benefits under the Employment Insurance Act (EIA) and the Employment Insurance Regulations (EIR).

The digest is a reference tool for all users and is intended for readers who have a general understanding of the Act and Regulations. As such, legal terms have been avoided as much as possible. The Commission attempts to ensure this information remains accurate and is updated regularly; however, it is not a substitute for the legislation.
