Courts hearing unemployment comp cases have recently been friendly to former employees seeking new jobs. However, now that the job market is recovering, some of that sympathy is evaporating. More and more, those seeking unemployment benefits are out of luck if they can’t show they are actively looking for work.
Recent case: Bree lost her part-time nursing assistant job and applied for unemployment. In the month before her hearing, she applied for just two suitable nursing positions. She claimed she was pregnant and would have applied for more jobs if she hadn’t been constantly sick.
She was turned down for the benefits because she was not diligently seeking suitable work. (Odell v. Department of Employment and Economic Development, No. A12-1121, Court of Appeals of Minnesota, 2013)
