0014 2245 68 (June 30, 2015) – Absence in the record of the employer’s video evidence or other first-hand account of the claimant’s purported theft rendered the review examiner’s finding that the claimant removed money from the cash register and placed it in her pocket unsupported. Without evidence of misconduct, the claimant may not be disqualified under G.L. c. 151A, § 25(e)(2).
0002 2966 80 (Mar. 19, 2014) – Board found the claimant’s signed confession to stealing from the employer to be reliable evidence of misconduct in light of the totality of the circumstances, which showed that the written statement was not coerced. [Note: The District Court affirmed the Board of Review’s decision.]
