Can I do any paid work while I am on leave?

If you do any work for your employer, they might be able to say that you have ended your leave. This could happen even if you do only part-time or temporary work for them.

You can work for a different employer while you are on leave and this will not end your leave.

But working for any employer while you are on leave could affect your Employment Insurance (EI) benefits. For more information, see What if I earn other income while I am receiving EI benefits?

Your leave does not last longer if you work. The date that your leave ends stays the same.
