Employee Forced to Quit Receives Favorable Ruling

Connecticut – A 60-year-old nurse who was employed at a facility specializing in short and long term rehabilitation, left her job after 29 years of employment due to an adverse change in her work duties. She was initially hired to work with patients who needed minimal assistance but was later required to work with patients who were paralyzed, a transition that significantly increased the amount of physical work required from her.

The employer fought the claimant when she sought unemployment benefits and the unemployment compensation administrator sided with them stating the claimant “voluntarily left suitable work without good cause attributable to her employer.” A referee affirmed the administrator’s ruling, but the Board of Review sided with the employee. According to attorneys specializing in labor and employment law, “this ruling is part of a growing trend benefiting Connecticut employees.”
