Court finds claimant committed disqualifying misconduct by failing to safeguard confidential employer information

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The court affirmed the Board’s finding that the claimant, a teacher, was not entitled to receive benefits because she committed disqualifying misconduct. The Board found the claimant violated her employer’s policy to safeguard confidential information when she emailed private student information to individuals not employed by her employer. The court thus affirmed the Board’s conclusion, finding that the claimant did not have good cause for violating the rule, nor were her actions accidental (Tammy H. Chimics v. UCBR, Pa. Comwth. Ct. (Unpub. Op.), No. 1298 C.D. 2017 and No. 1299 C.D. 2017, March 13, 2019).
