Answer for Jury Duty & EI

You may want to look at https://hrinsider.ca/jury-duty-leave-rights-know-the-laws-of-your-province/.
Employees absent from work for mandatory jury duty and not is compensated for that time off will generally suffer. Jurors are given $40 a day, only after serving without pay for the first 10 days on a jury. Thereafter, jurors receive a daily amount of $100 from the 50th day forward. Employees without emergency savings or with high expenses have a very hard time taking the required time off for jury duty. 
If a person is already on EI, they can continue to get EI while on jury duty, but an employee cannot apply for EI or emergency EI because of jury duty.
