week of unemployment  minor in extent 


The Claimant invested a lot of time, effort and money in establishing a restaurant with his wife. The BOR went through the six factors test to conclude that the claimant was not "minor in extent". The Umpire in this case substituted some other test. The Court found the Umpire could only reverse the Board's application of the law on the ground of simple unreasonableness. When the BOR deals with a question of mixed fact and law, an Umpire cannot overturn their decision if it is reasonable.
