Can I be disqualified for other reasons?
You can be disqualified for a certain period of time if Service Canada decides you did not do something that you were supposed to do.
You can be disqualified and not get EI for one to 6 weeks if you do not:
- follow reasonable written instructions from Service Canada,
- go to a meeting they want you to attend, or
- take part in a course or employment activity they send you to, quit it without reason, or are expelled.
You can be disqualified and not get EI for 7 to 12 weeks if:
- you do not accept a suitable job, or
- ou are aware of a suitable job but do not apply for it.
For more about what is a suitable job, see Do I have to take any job?
Service Canada must tell you in writing if you are disqualified. They might send you a warning letter first. But they do not have to do this. Whatever happens, get legal help right away. See Where can I get help and information? for more information.Previous page Next page
