Default Continuous employment question

Hi,

Would the following be considered continuous employment (for 1-year cont. employment requirement)?

Worked full-time for employer A for 6 months, then took 3 weeks off (while still officially employed), then came back from time-off and began working full-time for employer B, while still working PART-TIME for employer A. So technically, never really quit job at employer A, just changed from full-time to part-time after 3 weeks off. Time off was unpaid however.

Continued working full-time for employer B and part-time for employer A for the remaining 6 months and beyond.

Thank you.

You were employed (vacation or time off for any other reason while employed is not an unemployment).

Thank you very much. Another quick question:

Can two part-time jobs be counted as one full-time?

If so, would this be the same for both 1 year cont. employment requirement and when counting the number of years employed for points?

Both part-time jobs are done during the same time period, for 2 different employers.

Thank you!

It doesn't really matter how many jobs at the same time you worked at - part time jobs must be converted to full-time equivalent using 37.5 hours per week as full time. You may combine two or more part time jobs worked at the same time up to 37.5 hours per week to get full time experience counted, but work in excess of those 37.5 hours per week won't count.

Thanks again!

Am I correct in understanding that working part-time while studying full-time can't be counted for employment points?

For example,
- doing a 3-month, full-time summer internship between semesters (not going to school during those months though), OR
- working part-time while going to school full-time during semesters?

Are these even considered similar situations?

Thanks in advance!

No, you are not correct. Full time study means at least 15 hours of classes per week - it leaves you plenty of time during school weeks to work part time.
