0002 1377 85 (Oct. 6, 2014) – Claimant’s refusal to sign a conditional reinstatement agreement, which included language that reasonably could be interpreted to require her to surrender her collective bargaining rights, did not warrant disqualification under G.L. c. 151A, § 25(e)(2), because the refusal was not done in wilful disregard of the employer’s interest.
0008 9856 93 (Jan. 9, 2014) – A claimant who refused to sign a last chance agreement in lieu of termination did not separate from her job voluntarily; she was fired. Since the underlying conduct was the claimant’s poor work performance and there was no evidence that the claimant acted wilfully or deliberately, the Board held that she may not be disqualified under G.L. c. 151A, § 25(e)(2).
