NEW YORK UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE - HEARINGS AND APPEALS - MISCONDUCT OR SEPARATION RE: VACATIONS - CASE NO. 8 & 9

First, let me discuss my personal experiences:

1. Being self employed since around 1982, I have not had a real vacation since.

2. Prior thereto, when I worked at one firm, I did have a vacation and during the vacation, the firm sent me work to do as I was the attorney in charge. Shortly thereafter, I started my own firm.

3. And prior thereto to that incident, I worked at a firm where I was discharged for, among other things, insisting that I take my first vacation after two years (I am still friendly with this firm who advised me at my discharge that they would not dispute my unemployment insurance claim). I was on unemployment insurance for approximately two months until I secured a position at another firm.

I learned that vacations are needed. And I learned that vacations can interfere with business (ask any patient who gets upset when they find out their doctor is out on vacation).
