A14-1075, Michael McCalister, Relator, vs. The Fresh Group Ltd. - Maglio & Company, Respondent, Department of Employment and Economic Development, Respondent.
Relator Michael McCalister challenges the denial of his claim for unemployment benefits, arguing that the unemployment-law judge erred in determining that he was discharged for employment misconduct. The misconduct in this case was using a cell phone on the production floor after repeatedly being warned that such behavior violated company policy. Because sufficient evidence exists to support the decision, we affirm.
