What has been reviewed?
The Public Service Commission (PSC) has undertaken policy review of Maternity/Legal Adoption/Parental Leave Supplement to Employment Insurance (EI), also referred to as "top-up". Top-up benefit provides employees on maternity/legal adoption/parental leave with a supplemental payment that is in addition to the EI benefits received during a period of unemployment.
What has changed?
A number of "top-up" policies and supporting tools have been combined to provide better client service.
The PSC also developed additional supporting tools for employees who are applying for maternity/legal adoption/parental leave and "top-up" such as:
Updated HR policies and application forms clearly communicate roles and responsibilities within the application process. For instance, it is managers/supervisors' responsibility to acknowledge and sign the "top-up" application form and to submit a copy to the Human Resource Service Centre at email@example.com.
