Claimant who was subject to harassment had good cause to leave her employment

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The court affirmed the Board’s finding that the claimant was subject to retaliation and harassment. Under those circumstances, the Board concluded that the claimant had a necessitous and compelling reason for quitting her employment and, therefore, was entitled to receive benefits. The court concluded that the challenged findings of fact were supported by substantial evidence and upheld the Board’s determination that the claimant was subject to intolerable working conditions. The court also found that she met her burden of establishing that those working conditions justified her voluntary quit because the claimant persistently reported the instances of employee misconduct to her employer (Harmony Township v. UCBR, Pa. Comwth. Ct. (Unpub. Op.), No. 1019 C.D. 2018, March 4, 2019).
