Such a short post, yet has so much incorrect crap in it.

Well, in my situation, I kept showing up for work and doing my best, but the thing was, every time I'd talk to my supervisor/manager, they would assign me more physically-strenuous activities (i.e. building the garden center, stacking heavy freight, etc.), they'd deliberately schedule me to interfere with my school hours (and then refuse to change the hours when I brought it to their attention, saying I have a choice to go to school or show up for work on time), etc. It seemed like a pretty blatant case of bullying, IMO.

When I finally met with the general manager of the store (which was when I brought up a less-strenuous position, sick leave, lay off, etc.), it obviously didn't go any better.

The GM was a long-time friend, former co-worker, and hockey teammate of my dad's and that relationship went south pretty quick afterwards.

Used to go on EI all the time when I did contract work 16 years ago... I'd work for 6-8 months, make $50k and go on EI until I could land another contract. Getting another contract lined up to start right when the last one ends was difficult and got more difficult as the dot com bubble burst. After doing that for 3 years, I had enough of the instability and just got a regular job. Today, I can't imagine going on EI. It's not enough to pay the bills.

If you are eligible for max EI, it comes out to about 1056. They hold taxes so net is about 956 every 2 weeks.

EI does run out, roughly about 40 something or so weeks. After that, nothing.

Lots of misleading information here. Unless you can luck out and find a cash job, I agree, EI pays just enough to help you maintain a career search and/or go back to school.

No-one can stay on EI forever, don't confuse that with welfare recipients. Even then, Welfare recipients get what, 980 a month? That's awesome if you're a drug addict and/or want to struggle to live by the month.

This isn't how any of it works.

This is literally nothing in this statement that is accurate.

i think you greatly underestimate how much drug addicts need to get by. some of them can easily blow through $100 in a day.

to make it short, reasons for me are:

-Manager pressures myself and my partner to stay overtime to finisht he work, he guilt trips us into having to think it is our responsibility to stay

-he makes racist jokes or inappropriate jokes
-my position is leading to me having joint and mobility issues
-overworking, I am left to do the work alone before for a few months at a time when the job is a two person job, and in this case lead to my health issues
-contacting HR and upper management is difficult because they will side with the one manager.
-they changed my schedule with 1 week notice I've had contracted for hire the past few years
-more workload and expecting my partner and I to finish at the same required time

Those are reasons I am asking for eligibility for EI because going to a place to work like that everyday kills you and yes I am actively seeking diff job but I do not have days off for interviews and such. How would I explain all this to EI if I were to just quit?

You don't have to, quitting does not qualify for EI

People who spell a word as "eligable" do not qualify.

Edit: I had to misspell the word a second time because auto-correct fixed it for me before I posted.
