January 28, 2020 – Councillor Karygiannis Requests for Removal of 14-Day EI Waiting Period
In 2003, the Canadian Government waived the fourteen day waiting period for Employment Insurance for those who were medically quarantined due to the possible exposure to the SARS virus. This was done in order to help alleviate the economic hardship of not being able to go to work.
I have written to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau requesting that the Government of Canada waive the fourteen day EI Waiting Period for those individuals who are medically quarantined due to the possible exposure to the novel coronavirus.
