The Government of Canada is allowing employers to register Supplemental Unemployment Benefit (“SUB”) plans with Service Canada that would allow them to top-up EI benefits for laid-off employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While employers are permitted to top-up employees’ EI benefits, they are not permitted to top-up the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (“CERB”).

Employers that wish to provide a top-up must submit a SUB plan to Service Canada prior to its effective date and must provide written notice of any changes to the plan within thirty (30) days of the changes coming into effect.

If you have been temporarily laid-off or fired and want clarity regarding the government supports available, or feel that you may have been wrongfully terminated, please contact Toronto employment lawyers, Sultan Lawyers at 416-214-5111 or via email to mlahert@sultanlawyers.com.
