Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
voluntarily leaving employment  personal reasons  courses of study 


The Commission denied EI benefits to the claimant because he had left his employment to complete training. The FCA stated that the applicable test for determining whether an individual has just cause under s. 29 of the EIA is whether, having regard to all the circumstances, the claimant has no reasonable alternative to leaving the employment. The FCA concluded by reiterating that voluntarily leaving one's employment to undertake studies does not constitute just cause.
