Claimant denied benefits where he failed to give employer chance to accommodate medical condition

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The claimant, a salesperson, developed a medical condition leaving it difficult for him to stand. His employer tried to accommodate his condition by providing a stool and then by reassigning him to other departments at the same rate of pay. However, the claimant was unhappy with the new assignments and also felt he was improperly denied training for the new position to which he ultimately was assigned. He then left his job after failing to give the employer a reasonable opportunity to address these issues. Dissatisfaction with the employer's training procedures does not constitute good cause for leaving employment. Accordingly, the Board's decision to deny benefits was affirmed (Edmilson P. Xavier v. Commr., N.Y. Sup. Ct., App. Div., Third Dept., No. 527788, May 23, 2019).
