If I'm placed on Leave Without Pay because I'm not vaccinated, can I collect EI benefits?

not members and no page tag

Answer

An employee cannot receive EI payments when on leave without pay, as Employment and Social Development Canada’s eligibility requirements consider it to be the same as “if you voluntarily left your job without just cause.”

The Union continues to advocate for a policy that does not place members on leave without pay.
