UI Decision 2/4/1999

BOR (Board of Review)

Women's shelter employee went on partial leave of absence for health reasons, then had to stop working that job even part-time. Employer suggested she take a full LOA. She qualified for UI but then DET redetermined her eligibility and found she quit without good cause. BOR reversed, finding that employer's "suggestion" was in effect an involuntary separation. Also, her overpayment was incorrectly calculated; because she had continued to work another part-time job, constructive deduction per DES v. Fitzgerald should apply. BR-248440 Advocate: Patti Prunhuber, WMLS
