There were two unemployment decisions from the Minnesota Court of Appeals this week. Both relators dispute they are ineligible to receive unemployment benefits because they quit their employment without good reason caused by their employers.  As a general rule, if you quit employment, you are ineligible to receive unemployment benefits, unless you had good reason to quit caused by the employer, or one of a limited number of exceptions applies.  One of the relators is pro se, a Latin phrase that literally means "on behalf on oneself."  Both decisions were affirmed.

1.   A13-1806  Charles Lambert Bey, Relator, vs. W.W. Johnson Wholesale Meat Co., Inc., Respondent, Department of Employment and Economic Development, Respondent.

Summary: Pro se relator seeks certiorari review of an unemployment-law judge’s decision that he is ineligible to receive unemployment benefits because he quit his employment without good reason caused by his employer. We affirm.

2.  A13-2151   Michael Robin, Relator, vs. BHSI LLC, Respondent, Department of Employment and Economic Development, Respondent.

Summary:  Michael Robin sought unemployment benefits, but the department of employment and economic development determined that he is ineligible because he quit his employment without a good reason caused by his employer. After Robin filed an administrative appeal, an unemployment-law judge upheld the ineligibility determination and denied Robin’s request for reconsideration based on newly discovered evidence. We affirm.
