Wisconsin Woman Receives Unemployment After Discharge for Transaction Errors

In a unanimous decision reached last Thursday, the State Supreme Court has ruled that a terminated employee of a Wisconsin Walgreens store is eligible to receive unemployment benefits in spite of evidence of major transaction errors. Although there were eight errors having to do with undercharging and accepting unapproved forms of payment, there was no proof that her errors were intentional and thereby could not be qualified as “substantial fault”, a concept that became a part of the state’s unemployment law in 2014.
