Where a claimant of unemployment compensation benefits could have continued working for his employer in a new position after his old position was eliminated, employment security law is intended to provide security for the loss of employment generally rather than for the loss of a particular position, so the commission did not err in finding that the claimant left his job voluntarily without good cause to support the denial of benefits.
Judgment is affirmed.
