Employment insurance disqualification or disentitlement of person, status
Employment Insurance disqualification or disentitlement refers to claims for employment insurance benefits that have been suspended. A disentitlement is a suspension of benefits that may be imposed when a claimant fails to meet a specific entitlement condition. A disentitlement applies on a day-to-day basis for as long as the claimant's situation remains unchanged. No benefits are payable during a period of disentitlement. A disqualification is a suspension of benefits imposed due to a specific action or inaction by the claimant. It can be either indefinite or for a specific number of complete weeks.
Person refers to an individual and is the unit of analysis for most social statistics programs.
