Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Program

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

Employers can use a Supplemental Unemployment Benefit (SUB) plan to increase their employees’ weekly earnings when they are unemployed due to a temporary stoppage of work, training, illness, injury or quarantine.

Payments from SUB plans that are registered with Service Canada are not considered as earnings and are not deducted from EI benefits (pursuant to subsection 37(1) of the EI Regulations).

Employers who provide top-ups to maternity, parental (including adoption) or caregiving benefits (including compassionate care, family caregiver benefit for children and family caregiver benefit for adults) should refer to the Employers supplementing maternity, parental, caregiving benefits web page. These plans do not have to be registered with Service Canada.
