Description of the 2011 edition:

This Quick Reference provides a useful overview and new insight for employers and employees who have to deal with the somewhat unfamiliar terrain of public pensions and employment insurance, especially where those programs directly intersect with employment situations. It also includes consolidations of the Canada Pension Plan, an Act Respecting the Quebec Pension Plan, the Old Age Security Act, and the Employment Insurance Act.

The Guide details the history and development of the Canada Pension Plan, how it is administered, and specific information about the types of benefits available as well as the manner and timing of benefit payments. The authors have tried to reflect a more developed view about the state of public pension plans in light of rapid changes to the economy and investment strategies.

This edition also includes several new and revised chapters designed to assist employers, unions, employees and the self-employed in understanding the Employment Insurance Act: Employment Insurance benefits, EI adjudicative process, Record of Employment (ROE), structuring settlements and damages, federal work-sharing program, private pensions and the future of Employment Insurance.
