Applicant ineligible to receive employment insurance benefits because he left employment voluntarily

Federal appeal | Public Law | Social programs | Employment insurance

Social Security Tribunal, General Division determined that applicant was ineligible to receive employment insurance benefits because he had left employment voluntarily and without just cause. Social Security Tribunal, Appeal Division upheld decision. Applicant brought application for judicial review. Application dismissed. Appeal Division did not make any reviewable error in dismissing applicant’s appeal. Applicant did not provide support for submission that some factual findings made by Appeal Division were incorrect. Six months to review applicant’s claim was not undue delay. There was no evidence that General Division showed bias against applicant. It was appropriate to dismiss applicant’s motion to adduce new evidence concerning his job offer, as new evidence was generally not allowed in judicial review applications.

Mehra v. Canada (Attorney General) (2018), 2018 CarswellNat 2547, 2018 FCA 93, Dawson J.A., Gleason J.A., and Judith Woods J.A. (F.C.A.).
