Appeal BR-87291

BOR (Board of Review)

Claimant was fired and disqualified from UI; found new work, but at a wage that never exceeded what would have been her weekly benefit rate; was laid off over a year later and was denied UI benefits based on the previous disqualification. BOR holds that disqualification is lifted once a claimant has established monetary eligibility based on new employer(s). That is, disqualification ends with the old benefit year "unless the employer against which claimant was disqualified is also a base period employer on the new benefit year claim." DUA appealed this decision to Boston Muncipal Court, which affirmed. (Rick McIntosh, LSPCI)
