Click on the case numbers below to access eligibility decisions addressing whether a claimant quit a job for a good reason and whether that reason was attributable to the employer.


BR-109779 (April 1, 2010) -- A claimant with two part-time jobs quit the one with lower pay and fewer hours to work additional hours at the second.  The Board ruled that the second job was her primary employer and that the lower paying job had been subsidiary part-time work.  When she was laid off from her primary employer, she was entitled to benefits, but subject to a constructive deduction for leaving subsidiary part-time work without good cause attributable to the employer.
