Don’t worry if you make minor changes in job duties that end up creating more work for employees. Even the Division of Unemployment Insurance understands today’s business environment and has denied unemployment benefits to employees who quit because they have to work harder.
Recent case: Audrey Casperino, a cook, quit her job when she was told she would have to prepare additional meals each morning. She claimed the bigger workload was intolerable.
She filed for unemployment, but the state rejected her claim. It said her reason was nothing more than dissatisfaction with her working conditions, which weren’t onerous, unsuitable, abnormal or unhealthy. Only changes that rise to that higher level are good reasons for quitting. It denied benefits and the Superior Court upheld the decision. (Casperino v. Board of Review, No. A-6394-08-T3, Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division, 2010)
