However, students who have been hired for the summer or for a co-operative training (koop) are not allowed to participate in a work-sharing agreement. The work schedules of these co-operative education students (Koops) should be reduced for those in the participating work-sharing unit to ensure an equitable sharing of available work.

Work-Sharing is a three-part agreement between employers, workers and Service Canada. Work Sharing is a federal human resources and skills development program canada (Service Canada) funded by Unemployment Insurance (EI). The aim is to help employers and workers avoid temporary layoffs in the event of an unusual slowdown in production or service. The program is not designed for a seasonal slowdown. Ei will only consider a joint work-sharing application signed by both the employer and the union.
During the division of labour, available work is redistributed by reducing the number of hours worked by all staff in 1 or more work units. The reduction must be at least 20% (for example. B 1 day per week) or equivalent for workers with irregular jobs. Workers entitled receive benefits from the IS division of labour in their free time. When a worker is “on demand,” the employer must report the hours worked only if the worker is called. When the employee is called, the hours worked for the call are added to the Hours of Work column of the Occupancy Report (UR). Hours worked reduce the amount in the Missed Hours column. The salary cost of Tony`s staff participating in this training will not be offset by the work-sharing program, as the training will take place during the scheduled normal workdays. Under the program, all training activities offered during unplanned workdays for which staff would receive work-sharing services are optional All application information is treated confidentially. As part of improving eligibility for the division of labour under COVID 19 special measures, post-secondary organizations are eligible for funding because they are not fully funded by the public sector. During the duration of the contract, a usage report must be submitted weekly, including weekly without use (i.e. missed hours equal to 0).
Employers can use simplified application forms for the distribution of work: income from work that does not come from the employer with division of labour is deducted from the remuneration payable on the basis of existing labour and rights provisions. In a non-unionized job, the worker`s representative is normally a member of the work-sharing unit, but other examples may be: the Work-Sharing (WS) program provides income assistance to workers who are entitled to Employment Insurance (E) benefits who are willing to work a reduced work week if the normal level of economic activity outside the employer`s control is reduced. Work-sharing is a program supported by the Employment Insurance Fund that helps employers expect cuts and avoid layoffs. The reduction in employment must be between 10% and 60% of a normal working week during the duration of the agreement. To compensate for the decline in employer income, the Employment Insurance Commission of Canada (The Commission) assists EI-entitled workers in the collection of EI benefits. The work-sharing agreement can be terminated at any time, and the termination of an agreement usually takes effect on the Saturday following the date of notification. Employers who still need help after accessing CEWS can request or re-apply for the SS. Please read all the information and discuss it with your employer. Please keep this document as you have for the duration of the contract.
