NEW YORK UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE - HEARINGS AND APPEALS - MISCONDUCT OR SEPARATION WITH GOOD CAUSE - CASE NO. 7
My interpretation of Appeal Board decisions is that the claimant must establish by credible evidence that the claimant is entitled to benefits. Thus, even though the employer did not appear at the hearing, it was the claimant's duty to establish by credible evidence that the claimant did not voluntarily separate without good cause. The hearing began with the standard introductions as to how the hearing would proceed, the ALJ asked myself and the claimant if we were ready to proceed, we said yes, and the hearing began.
