The Minnesota Court of Appeals issued one decision this week on unemployment benefits.  The decision underscores the rule that employment misconduct renders an otherwise eligible applicant ineligible for unemployment benefits.  Here is the summary:

A14-0947, Melissa Jungen, Relator, vs. Sanders, Inc., Respondent, Department of Employment and Economic Development, Respondent.

In this certiorari appeal, relator challenges the decision of an unemployment-law judge (ULJ) denying her unemployment benefits on the ground that she was discharged for employment misconduct -- a violation of the standards of behavior that an employer has the right to reasonably expect.. Because the ULJ did not err by determining that relator’s conduct of improper cell-phone use, poor attendance, and insubordination met the statutory standard for employment misconduct, thus rendering her ineligible for benefits, we affirm.

If you are denied unemployment benefits, or are an employer who wants to challenge a former employee's eligibility for benefits, your best bet is to meet with an attorney who handles unemployment appeals to discuss your options.  To that end, I represent both applicants and employers in unemployment appeals.  Please call (763) 450-9494 today to set up an appointment to discuss your situation.
