Employment Insurance

The Teachers' Guide to Employment Insurance

The Employment Insurance Act has a very profound effect on the lives of many Canadians. Most employees, including teachers, contribute to EI and likewise are entitled to its benefits.

This posting was prepared to help teachers understand the kind of benefits available and what must be done to qualify. It is intended primarily as a resource for school representatives in the hope that answers can be provided at the school level to teacher inquiries.

Additional assistance and information is available, where necessary, from NSTU Central Office.

Although every effort has been made to provide accurate information, this posting is a general guide only. When a conflict arises, the Employment Insurance Act and Regulations must govern.
