Yvon Godin NDP Acadie—Bathurst, NB

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-483, an act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (amounts not included in the earnings).

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to amend the term “remuneration” to exclude amounts received as a pension, retirement pension or allowance, vacation pay or separation allowance.

This will mean, for example, that if people receive a separation allowance they will have an opportunity to find other jobs, set up a small business on their own, or something of the sort. They are penalized under the act as it now stands.
