voluntarily leaving employment  personal reasons  courses of study 


Referring to G. Stevens (A-599-95), the FCA reinforced the principle that voluntarily leaving one's employment to return to school does not constitute just cause for running the risk of unemployment. It is irrelevant that the conditions later evolved and that her course became unavailable. It is the circumstances that existed at the time of quitting that determine whether she had just cause when she left her job.
