The Umpire could not ignore the consistent FCA case law to the effect that claimants who voluntarily leave their employment to go back to school do not have "just cause" within the meaning of sections 29 and 30 of the EIA. Claimants cannot make the Employment Insurance Fund support the economic weight of their decisions. References made to FCA decisions in West (A-0349.95), Stevens (A-0599.95), Furey (A-0819.95) and Barnett (A-0037.96), among others.
