Feb. 24, 2022

Did you know there is an ROE document that you can submit to Canada Revenue Agency to get Employment Insurance benefits? No? Don't worry! Here is everything in detail about ROE and how you can get this opportunity. 

What is ROE?

ROE stands for 'Record of Employment that keeps the record of employees' work like for how long they have worked and how much they have earned where they worked. With the help of this information, the Services of Canada can evaluate if his particular employee is eligible for benefits of Employment Insurance benefits, like how much funds should be given to them and for how long these funds should be given to them.

How Does It Work?

ROE is a form or a document that an employer fills for an employee to get EI benefits in the following situations:

  • An employee has resigned.
  • An employee has been fired.
  • An employee is expected to have seven days without employment and no insurance from the employer (known as The Seven Day Rule.)
  • An employee is paid less than 60% of his regular weekly earnings because of sickness, accident, pregnancy, or another issue.

Two Formats of ROE:

You can submit the ROE document in any of these two formats:

  1. Electronic ROE
  2. Paper ROE

Electronic ROE:

You can submit ROE online to Canada Revenue Agency in two ways:

  • First, you can submit the form through ROE Webby manually entering data online through a Canadian website.
  • You can submit the ROE form through Secure Automated Transfer (SAT), which the payroll service provider handles on your behalf by using bulk transfer technology.

Paper ROE:

You can submit ROE as a paper document. it is a one-page document that has three parts.

  • The original copy is given to the employee to apply for Employment Insurance benefits.
  • A Blue copy is given to Canada Revenue Agency.
  • Carbon copy is to keep it to you for the business records.

What to Do With the ROE Forms?

CRA uses the information to determine whether the person is eligible to get Employment Insurance funds, how much amount will be enough, and how long they are suitable for the benefits. Then, through ROE forms, CRA makes sure that no one misuses the EI funds, and only those will get this opportunity that genuinely deserves. 

Deadline for Issuing an ROE:

Submitting ROE File through Paper:

The deadline to submit the ROE file depends on your submission format. If you are applying on paper, you will need to do it within five days of:

  • The first day of your unemployment.
  • The day on which the employer becomes aware of the loss of income.

Submitting ROE File Electronically:

  • If you submit the ROE file electronically, the deadline will depend on your company's pay month. For example, if your pay period is weekly, biweekly, or semi-monthly, you have five calendar days after the end of the pay period to submit the document.
  • If your pay period is monthly or 13 pay periods per year (every 4weeks), you must submit the file within five calendar days after your pay cycle. An employee's salary is affected 15 calendar days after the first day of an earning disturbance.

Wrapping it up!

ROE is a document provided to CRA every time the employee has an "Interruption of Earnings." If you are having trouble locating your ROE or understanding when and where to send the forms, don't hesitate to contact Yogi & Associates as we make sure that your work is done entirely in the system, making the entire process a breeze.
