I've been working at a place for 6 months and now they want me to switch to a contract style position as well as getting me another contract to do a mobile application.
At first the deal seems good but if I would end up forfeit my Employment Insurance because I'd be getting income.
I was thinking could I start a corporation and have the corporation receive the income while I'm on unemployment? I'd actively be looking for a job as well and could finish the app on the weekend. Is this legal?
If not I would probably refuse the offer at current price because alternatively I could receive 55% of my income while looking for a better job as well as working on my own mobile app, which I could work on for several months and then put it on the market after I get another job or finish with the employment benefits.
EDIT: I'm in Ontario, Canada.
