- receiving pay from the employer that is a party to the job alternation leave
- in military or non-military service
- in full-time employment lasting more than two weeks with another employer
- you are engaged in full-time business activities

Child home care allowance is a family benefit that is usually deducted from the allowance of the recipient of job alternation compensation. Child home care allowance is not deducted if the allowance is paid to your partner who cares for a child full-time at home and would consequently not be eligible for an unemployment benefit. If your partner is unemployed and the child home care allowance is paid to your partner, it will be deducted from your partner’s unemployment allowance.
