Employee quit for better job? Beware unemployment liability

by on
in Employment Law,Human Resources

Sometimes, a new job doesn’t work out—and the new kid on the block is the first to be let go in a downturn. That’s when his previous employer may be in for a surprise.

Recent case: Joel Strate worked part time with no benefits at Quality Mobile Transport. He quit after being offered more money plus health benefits with a new employer. Although he had a start date and attended orientation, the job offer didn’t pan out because the new employer decided it couldn’t afford to hire new workers.

Strate filed for unemployment, which Quality Mobile Transport contested. Strate explained the terms that made him jump ship.

The court said Quality Mobile was on the hook for the benefits. (Strate v. Quality Mobile Transport, No. A11-468, Court of Appeals of Minnesota, 2012)
