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


On November 27, 2010, the claimant left her employment with Stitch-It in order to take a training course and upgrade her skills. She also found the hours irregular and was concerned about a discrepancy that she had identified in the till. On January 4, 2011, she found alternate employment where she worked until May 31, 2011, when she lost her job. The Commission found that, because the claimant had left her position with Stitch-It voluntarily and without just cause, it could not include the 323 hours that she had worked there during her qualifying period as hours of insurable employment for the purposes of calculating her benefit rate and her benefit entitlement. This resulted in a lower benefit rate and fewer weeks of benefits than the claimant had expected. The FCA found Ms. Lakic’s argument for leaving her employment insufficient to intervene with the decision.
