Just cause to quit and get EI?
My employer keeps delaying payroll, we're now a full month behind and there's not much hope to get paid everything that's due. Late payment of salaries begun 16 months ago and management keeps making promises, only to break them instantly. Last summer they reduced our working hours to 35hrs/week as a temporary money-saving measure and today we're still on reduced hours.
A lot of employees have filed complaints with the ministry of labour of Ontario but nothing happened. The company cannot pay salaries and refuses to lay off because they would have to pay severance, so they're basically forcing us to quit if we don't like the way we're being treated.
Would this be considered 'just cause' to quit and get EI?
I can't take this anymore, I can't pay my bills on time and my last paycheque bounced. I'm not sure I can find a new job immediately so I really need EI in that eventuality.
Thanks in advance for your help!
