0020 4770 73 (Aug. 28, 2017) – Claimant had a heightened obligation to take precautionary measures to stay awake on the night shift, where he was responsible for monitoring adolescents on suicide watch.  A prior warning for sleeping on the job put him on notice that he was susceptible to drowsiness.  Because the claimant denied that he was sleeping on the job, he offered no mitigating factors.  He is not eligible for benefits after resigning in lieu of discharge.
