Record of Employment (ROE)

Record of Employment (ROE) is an official form used by an employee in establishing a claim for  Employment Insurance (EI) benefits. An ROE provides information on employment history, such as length of employment and earnings.

This is commonly provided when there is an interruption in earnings that lasts longer than seven consecutive calendar days, such as a layoff, termination, or when an employee quits. This may also happen when an employee's salary falls below 60% of regular weekly earnings due to a variety of possible interruptions, such as:

  • Illness
  • Injury
  • Quarantine
  • Pregnancy
  • The need to care for a newborn or a child placed for the purposes of adoption
  • The need to provide care or support to a family member who is gravely ill with a significant risk of death
  • The need for a parent to care for a critically ill child
Regardless of whether an employee intends to file for EI benefits, an employer is required to file the Record of Employment, either electronically or on paper.
