NOTE TO EMPLOYEES OF COMMUNITY MICROSKILLS DEVELOPMENT CENTRE REGARDING THE WAGE EARNER PROTECTION PROGRAM ("WEPP")
The Trustee is in the process of gathering 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. Once all the information is obtained and reviewed, the Trustee will send 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"). Employees will then be able to review the proof of claim to confirm the Company's information agrees to their records. The Trustee will also send this information to Service Canada (the agency that administers WEPP). We hope to have the WEPP Packages mailed out by the end of February.
Service Canada will not deal with any WEPP claims until such time as the Trustee sends the information to them and the employees. Accordingly, please wait for your WEPP Package before applying for WEPP or submitting a proof of claim.
Once you receive your WEPP Package, you will then 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.
Please continue to visit this website for updates on the status of the WEPP Packages.Read More
