Record of Employment (ROE)

When an employee has quit, was laid-off or their employment was terminated, or may have seven consecutive calendar days without both work and insurable earnings from the employer, then by law, an ROE must be completed and given to the employee.  The employee requires this report in order to apply for employment insurance benefits.  You must contact Service Canada at 450-445-0411 or 1-800-550-9004 to order these reports which takes about 10 working days to receive by mail.  The report has 3 copies, one for your employee, one the employer keeps for the file and one is mailed to Revenue Canada’s Bathurst, New Brunswick office.  All instructions on completing the report and the mailing address are contained in the report.  A penalty may apply to employers who fail to issue an ROE to their employees.
