Employee is related to owner of company - Re: Employment Insurance

I am filling out T-4's for one of my smaller clients - 3 employees - and one of those employees is related to the owner and therefore is not entitled to collect EI, nor do they have to pay... so on the T-4 I had to override the EI amount, but I would think the system must have some way of identifying related employees.  If so can you tell me where it is?

Hello Cathy,

In your situation you don't need to override the EI instead you just need to set the box 28 "EI Exempt" indicator to a "Yes" that will stop EI calculation from kicking in.

Hope the above helps.

Thank you.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
