Years ago I spoke with an unemployment judge who told me the following story…
The judge had just heard an unemployment case between an employer and a former employee who was fired because of 68 Absences in a 10 Month Period. It sound like it would have been a gross attendance problem and that the employer should have won the unemployment case.
That’s not what happened!
The former employee WON the case and received unemployment charge to the employer. To make a bad case worse, the employers’ unemployment experience rating went up and affected their unemployment rate for the next 3 years.
How did the employer lose such an easy case? The employee was warned dozens of times and told not to be absent.
