Add Comment Question: Under Ontario's ESA a temporary layoff becomes a termination after a certain number of weeks. If your final pay cheque includes a number of weeks worth of vacation pay (for a vacation you have not yet taken), does week 1 of the temporary layoff begin on the first weekday after your last day at work, or does week 1 begin on the first weekday after the number of weeks of vacation have passed? Answer: The layoff would begin on the first weekday after your last day that you worked.
