NEW YORK UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE - DISABILITY AND CLAIMANTS

The Appeal Board has a similar position on drug addiction resulting from illegal substances. In AB 542565 (Mailed and Filed: SEPTEMBER 16, 2008), the Appeal Board noted:

"OPINION: The evidence establishes that the claimant resigned from his employment due to his own personal issues. The claimant contends that the reason for his separation was that he was addicted to drugs and decided to go to rehabilitation. However, while there may have been a clear need for the claimant to have undergone treatment, it should be noted that his drug addiction/abuse and subsequent need for rehabilitation was a foreseeable consequence of his own use of a controlled substance."

The full decision can be found at AB 542565 (Mailed and Filed: SEPTEMBER 16, 2008)
