What is Employment Insurance?
Employment Insurance is a system which provides unemployed individuals with financial assistance when they become unemployed or are unable to continue working. The procedures required to be able to receive employment insurance are done by one’s company. An insurance premium will be deducted from the salary of eligible individuals every month.

Regardless of a worker’s title or status such as a full-time employee, part-time employee, or temporary employee, if they work for over 20 hours per week, and are expected to be employed for over 31 days, in principle, they are considered eligible to receive Employment Insurance.
