Choosing an ROE Reason Code

Have more questions? Submit a request

When you issue a Record of Employment (ROE), one of the things you'll need to select is a Reason Code. These are determined by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), which has assigned codes to the most common reasons for issuing an ROE.

What code should I use?

The CRA recommends that you choose the code that best reflects the reason you're issuing the ROE. Humi helps to simplify this decision by only showing the codes that are applicable based on the status of your employee.

Keep in mind that if you include a comment, Service Canada will review the ROE manually. This slows down the review process, and Service Canada may need to contact you for clarification. Learn More
