Claimant denied benefits after not contacting temp agency for a month

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The claimant was an employee of a company that places temporary workers with business clients. The company had placed the claimant with a business but the business ended the assignment when the claimant failed to keep up with the pace. The talent manager for the temp company called the claimant to inform her she was no longer assigned to the business, but the claimant cried, yelled, and hung up on her. The claimant did not contact the temp company for more than a month, at which time the company indicated that it would not be comfortable placing her again due to her behavior. She then was denied benefits for having voluntarily quit. The court upheld the agency’s determination and found that because her employment agreement with the temp company required the claimant to maintain weekly contact and she failed to do so, she was not entitled to benefits (Teresa L. Sladek v. EAB and Kelly Services USA LLC, Iowa Ct. of App, No. 18-0981, May 15, 2019).
