Where following an employee’s allegedly work-related health problems, an employer transferred the employee and asked him to provide a doctor’s note of release to return to work, take FMLA leave or apply for short-term disability, but the employee did none of the above and did not return to work, the record supported a finding that the employee left work voluntarily, so the denial of unemployment compensation benefits is affirmed.
Judgment is affirmed.
