Employment Insurance Benefits
In many situations, employees who have been constructively dismissed or wrongfully dismissed have difficulty obtaining employment insurance benefits, given their former employer’s characterization of their departure in the Record of Employment.
In these situations, your application for benefits is critical as a government officer will assess how you have described the reasons for your departure in order to determine whether to grant you benefits.
