Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
voluntarily leaving employment  to hold a second job 


The claimant had two part-time jobs during his qualifying period. He left one of his jobs so that he could take a five-month training course while keeping his second job. The Commission informed him that he had voluntarily left his employment at Solvanet without just cause and that, consequently, the insurable hours he accumulated before his leaving could not be used for the purposes of the claim. The FCA dismissed the Commission’s arguments, finding that the claimant had just cause for voluntarily leaving his job with Solvanet because he was still working for the Coopérative. The FCA referred to Leung (2004 FCA 130) and Gennarelli (2004 FCA 198) in order to reiterate that a claimant has just cause for voluntarily leaving one of two jobs that he or she has when it is reasonable to believe that he or she will keep the other job. The application for judicial review was dismissed.
