NOTE TO EMPLOYEES OF COMMUNITY MICROSKILLS DEVELOPMENT CENTRE REGARDING THE WAGE EARNER PROTECTION PROGRAM ("WEPP")
The Trustee has now gathered payroll related information for the purpose of determining what outstanding wages, vacation pay, expenses, termination and severance pay are owing to the employees according to the Company's records. In a bankruptcy, employees are entitled to termination and severance pursuant to the Employment Standards Act. The Trustee mailed each employee an individual and personalized package with a summary of what is owing to them, a pre-populated proof of claim and instructions on how to apply for WEPP (the "WEPP Package") on March 3, 2017. Employees will be able to review the proof of claim to confirm the Company's information agrees to their records. The Trustee has also sent this information to Service Canada (the agency that administers WEPP).
Once you receive your WEPP Package, you will have to submit your signed proof of claim to the Trustee and apply for WEPP with Service Canada. Once the Trustee notifies Service Canada that you have submitted your proof of claim, they will administer your WEPP claim directly with you.
UPDATE TO EMPLOYEES ON THE STATUS OF RECORDS OF EMPLOYMENT
We have been able to confirm that ADP will file electronic copies of the ROEs with Service Canada on Wednesday, March 8th, 2017.
