Woman Who Quit After Raise Request Was Denied is Also Denied Unemployment Benefits

Pennsylvania – In a recent ruling, the Commonwealth Court denied unemployment benefits to a woman who quit her job when she didn’t receive a raise after her job title was changed. The claimant stated that she was hired as a customer service rep in September 2015, but that her job title changed to a data analyst just two days later. The claimant felt that this entitled her to a raise while the employer disputed this claiming that there was no significant change in her job duties that would warrant a raise. The Judge overseeing the case agreed with the employer and ruled in their favor citing that there wasn’t a compelling enough reason for the claimant to have quit her job.
