Unemployment Compensation: Denial Of Benefits – Voluntary Leave – Health Condition

Even though an employer argued that an employee voluntarily left her job because she did not notify the employer when she was released by her doctor to return to work, the evidence showed that the employee, who told the employer that she did not want to quit, believed that she had been terminated already during a previous conference call, so the judgment finding the employee eligible for unemployment compensation benefits is affirmed.

Judgment is affirmed.
