0022 2055 38 (Aug. 31, 2018) – Because claimant’s unreported absences were due to domestic violence, she is eligible for benefits. Even if she did not present hospital records of treatment for injuries by her abusive boyfriend on the date of her first absence, other evidence, including police reports of domestic violence before and immediately after her absences, restraining orders, and her own undisputed testimony, showed that her separation was attributable to her need to address the physical and psychological effects of domestic violence pursuant to G.L. c. 151A, § 25(e).
