With respect to earnings during „child care“, these are considered earnings from WS employment and cannot be reported on the UR unless the hours worked were 0. Since the employee would only receive „on-call“ earnings if he or she physically answered a call, the hours worked would not be 0 and the earnings would not be reported. The staff representative is required to verify the accuracy of Annex A and may play a role in transmitting the information to the division of labour unit. Employers and employees must agree to participate in a work-sharing agreement. The application will then be sent to Service Canada. Below are instructions on the duration of the program and its impact on employees` work schedules. An employee who has a weekly EI benefit rate of $500.00 and a normal 40-hour work week will be reduced to 30 hours under the work-sharing agreement. Each employee who participates in the work-sharing program must receive an employment protocol (SPC). Proof of employment may be issued after the employee has completed his or her last shift before the start of the agreement. Your employees` benefits cannot be calculated without employment records, so please submit the employment diary as soon as possible. Employment files can be submitted electronically through the Web Employment Record (RE Web).
If you haven`t already, you`ll need to sign up for ROE Web. Answer no unless you have worked for another employer, in which case you must answer yes. In addition, you can find general information about division of labor agreements on the following website. Total number of hours and appointments worked/paid for a division of labour employer other than your employer, including overtime, paid sick leave, paid leave or any other paid leave. For active agreements ending between March 15, 2020 and March 14, 2021, they may be entitled to an extension of 38 or 50 weeks for a total of 76 weeks. If they accept the work reduction, non-ELIGIBLE employees can continue to work the reduced hours and are paid by the employer for the days they work, but do not receive EI benefits on the days they do not work. Employers who wish to make changes to their work-sharing agreement must do so by resubmitting the Work-Sharing Agreement form (EMP5100) with the required information and selecting the change field at the top of the form. It is essential that the employer and the employee representative sign all these amendments.
These changes cannot be implemented until you have received approval from Service Canada. Once approved, make sure the change appears in your weekly usage report in the „Comments“ section. A formal work-sharing request must be received by Service Canada at least 10 business days prior to the desired start date. Prior to COVID-19, employers were asked to submit their applications at least 30 calendar days prior to the start date (see COVID-19 LABOUR DIVISION for details). Employers can now submit 1 work-sharing application, even if multiple work units are included, provided that the employer, union representative or employee representative remains the same for all units and that their names are added to all Schedule A forms. If an employee is „on call“, the employer only has to report the hours worked if the employee is consulted. When the employee is called, the hours worked during the call are added to the Hours Worked column of the Usage Report (UR). Hours worked reduce the amount in the Missed Hours column. .
