Digest of Benefit Entitlement Principles Chapter 7 A.3

A.3 Information sought from employer

The role of the employer is to provide the Commission with information concerning the reason for the termination of employment, specifying, among other things:

  • what actions or omissions caused the employer to decide to dismiss the employee; (i.e.: their exact nature, context and background)
  • why the employer felt that such actions or omissions warranted dismissal of the employee;
  • whether such actions or omissions violated a provision of the contract of employment or a policy or rule of the employer or essential conditions of employment;
  • what information the employer relied on to conclude that the employee committed the actions or omissions in question (i.e.: testimony, investigations, reports, other sources of information);
  • whether the person in question had been informed of the employer's rules, policies, requirements or expectations;
  • what reasons the claimant gave the employer for these actions or omissions;
  • if the employer became aware of such actions or omissions some time before dismissing the employee, the reasons for the time elapsed before the termination of employment.
