VL 300.8 Change in Terms

Click on the case numbers below to access eligibility cases, where a claimant quit due to a change in the terms of employment.

0018 2363 62

0018 2363 62 (Oct. 28, 2016) – When claimant returned from an extended workers’ compensation leave, the employer only had work available on the evening shift.  Because this conflicted with her law school classes, the claimant chose to resign rather than forfeit $14,000 in tuition.  This was a financial decision and not good cause attributable to the employer to quit.  Financial loss and stress do not constitute urgent, compelling, and necessitous circumstances.

0017 7900 96

0017 7900 96 (Oct. 19, 2016) – Claimant had good cause attributable to the employer to quit, because the on-call job given to him after returning from a workers’ compensation leave did not provide any hours for several weeks.  The position was unsuitable.

0017 2866 38

0017 2866 38 (July 14, 2016) – Board declined to disqualify a claimant, who was hired to be an activities director at the employer’s rest home, but was transferred to being an aide after the employer decided that she could not do the director position.  Claimant had good cause to resign because the new position was unsuitable.  Attempts to change the essential elements of the job would have been futile.

0002 2744 49

0002 2744 49 (July 31, 2014) – Claimant who resigned rather than sign an over-broad non-compete agreement was eligible for benefits under § 25(e)(1), because the detrimental change to his terms and conditions of employment rendered his job unsuitable.
