BR-117413-CTRM (Aug. 25, 2011) – A majority of the Board concluded that the claimant, the president and partial owner of two corporations, was not entitled to benefits under the doctrines set forth under White or State Street Bank.  Unlike the claimant in White, who was a low-level employee with no control over his pending layoff, and the claimants in State Street, who had no information to assess their vulnerability to layoff, the claimant had complete information and control over his separation from employment.  [Note:  The District Court affirmed the Board of Review.]
