Cut unemployment liability by working to keep employee

by on
in Compensation and Benefits,Human Resources

Employees who quit their jobs aren’t eligible for unemployment compensation benefits unless they legitimately believe they had no choice but to resign. But if an employer makes a genuine effort to help the employee stay and he turns down that offer, he may lose eligibility for unemployment.

Recent case: Jong Pak told his employer he would have to quit his job because the schedule was impossible for him. His employer offered to modify Pak’s schedule and place him in a part-time job. Pak resigned anyway and applied for unemployment compensation.

His request was denied because the employer had tried to accommodate Pak’s needs. In the end, he did not have a compelling reason to quit since his employer effectively offered to help. (Pak v. Board of Review, No. A-0703-10T4, Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division, 2011)
