Employees these days are working harder and longer than ever. And that can be stressful. Some employees may believe they can escape the pressure by quitting because of stress and applying for unemployment. That usually won’t work.
Recent case: George Condos was a corporate controller who earned more than $130,000 per year. When his company merged with another, several members of his group were terminated. Condos had to do their jobs, too.
He developed symptoms of stress and walked out, claiming he couldn’t take it anymore. Then he applied for unemployment compensation.
He was not eligible because he offered no medical evidence to support his claim. The court said he should have realized that following a merger, he would have more work to do. (Condos v. Board of Review, No. A-1112-09T3, Superior Court of New Jersey, 2010)
