Employees who are ill due to COVID-19 are entitled to claim a special illness benefit through the UIF. When ending their service, please use code 10.
For details on ending an employee’s service on SimplePay, please see our help page here. Please remember to also capture the anticipated reinstatement date at the same time so that we can generate a complete individual UI 19 for each employee.
More information on UIF codes is available in our COVID-19 UIF Quick Reference Guide.
