Claimant quit her job in Labrador to follow a course. The BOR, taking into consideration the socio-economic situation in Labrador, found that the claimant had no alternative than to quit her job if she wanted to improve her future. The Umpire refused to substitute his opinion for that of the BOR. In a short judgment, the Court has reaffirmed the well-established principle that leaving a job for the purpose of education does not qualify as "just cause" for leaving and allowed the Commission's application.
