Click on the case numbers below to access eligibility decisions based upon whether a claimant voluntarily left a job in order to accept a permanent full-time position with another employer.

0025 1670 85

0025 1670 85 (Nov. 16, 2018) – Claimant submitted his resignation with a verbal job offer in hand that was specific as to his position, shift, location, and salary, but which was contingent upon passing a drug screen and background check. Where the new employer rescinded the offer based upon a break in past employment that the claimant had already revealed during the interview, the claimant could not reasonably have anticipated that he would not be hired. Held he left in good faith to accept new permanent, full-time employment and became separated for good cause attributable to the new employing unit pursuant to G.L. c. 151A, § 25(e).

0010 6162 10

0010 6162 10 (Sept. 29, 2014) – Where the claimant resigned to accept full-time employment with a temporary staffing agency, the Board held that the claimant left his former job in good faith to accept new employment on a permanent full-time basis.  Although the nature of his assignments were temporary, the claimant’s relationship with the staffing agency was permanent within the meaning of G.L. c. 151A, § 25(e).

0002 1161 65

0002 1161 65 (Nov. 13, 2013) – Where claimant left her employment for another job without a bona fide offer of new full-time permanent employment, and the new job fell through, she was ineligible for benefits.  The new employer did not provide a start date or starting salary, did not give her anything in writing offering her a new job, and only had her fill out employment forms which could be used by the new employer if she was to be offered the new job.


BR-108951 (July 29, 2009) – Awarded benefits to claimant who left work voluntarily to accept a full-time "temp-to-perm" position, where the new position had all the characteristics of a permanent job, notwithstanding its label.
