UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE - VOLUNTARY SEPARATION

Continuing on this issue, what happens when you quit because you can't get along with your boss or co-workers? Here are some cases from the Appeals Board website:

Incompatibility with an employer ordinarily does not constitute good cause for a voluntary quit unless accompanied by factors such as resulting impairment of the claimant's health or impugnment by the employer of claimant's honesty and integrity. (; A.B. 39,427-53)

False accusations or constant insinuations made by the employer that claimant is dishonest may constitute good cause for voluntary leaving. (A.B. 13,297-46)

Constant nagging by his supervisor, as distinguished from legitimate criticism, may constitute good cause for an employee's voluntary leaving of employment. (Ref. Dec. 51-325-52R; ; similarly, A.B. 258,475A)

When working conditions become intolerable because of continuous friction with supervisor, good cause may exist for voluntary leaving. (A.B. 12,979-46)

Mere inability to get along with supervisor (clash of personalities) is not good cause for voluntary leaving. (A.B. 13.010-46)

Mere displeasure with a co-worker's attitude in the absence of evidence that health was being impaired is not sufficient of itself to constitute good cause for voluntary leaving. (A.B. 16,683-48)

Inability to get along with a fellow employee is not in itself good cause for leaving employment. (A.B. 7053-42)

Being harassed and annoyed by co-workers to such an extent that health is adversely affected may be good cause for voluntary leaving. (A.B. 8108-42)

A supervisor's continuing use of abusive profanity when reprimanding the claimant, despite complaints to the employer, provides good cause for voluntary leaving of employment. (A.B. 337,447;

Disagreement with an employer's new and reasonable "no smoking" policy, which makes provision to accommodate "smokers" does not constitute good cause for leaving employment. (A.B. 388,255;
